Cost of Attendance

Adjustment to Cost of Attendance

The Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid (OSFA) will need to adjust your estimated cost of attendance for the term in which you plan to go abroad. The Education Abroad Office will help you determine the cost of attendance for your specific program, broken down into the following five categories:

  • Tuition/Fees
  • Room/Board
  • Books/Supplies
  • Travel Expenses
  • Miscellaneous Expenses

Please note that you may include airfare, in-country transportation, day-to-day spending money, passport and visa fees, etc., but you may not include leisure (non-academic) travel and costs. Regardless of the total cost, the amount you may be eligible to borrow cannot exceed the federal limits based on your grade level.

For UNL Faculty-Led programs, detailed cost information will be available on the Education Abroad website. For other programs, your program sponsor will provide you with billable program costs as well as estimates for out-of-pocket costs. If you find at any stage of the process that your estimate was inaccurate, please contact the Education Abroad staff to request a re-adjustment.
