Study abroad program costs vary widely and may be more or less expensive than studying at Northwestern. Review the comparison.
This section outlines some of the billing and financial arrangements for affiliated CIEE programs, and is intended as a guide to help you navigate the financial aspects of your study abroad process. You should always refer to your program materials for the most current information and instructions.
After you are accepted to a CIEE program, you will be required to pay a participation confirmation directly to CIEE to confirm your participation on the program. It is your responsibility to pay this deposit; Northwestern cannot pay or waive deposits for affiliated programs.
Your Northwestern invoice will be issued through CAESAR on the regular quarterly schedule, and will include your CIEE program fee and the NU study abroad fee. Refer to your program materials for the most current cost information.
If you use the Northwestern 9PAY plan, you may continue to use 9PAY for your NU-billed study abroad expenses, but you should request a study abroad 9PAY estimate to have your plan set up appropriately.
Because your program fee will be billed through your Northwestern account, you should not receive a separate invoice from CIEE for your program's tuition, housing, or CIEE insurance. You may be responsible for obtaining your own student visa; refer to your program materials and contact CIEE directly if you have any questions.
Additional fees may apply for certain courses, meal plans, housing add-ons, field trips, or other optional items related to your program. If applicable, you are responsible for paying these fees directly to CIEE.
