Indiana University

This page outlines some of the billing and financial arrangements for the Bologna Consortial Studies Program (BCSP) through Indiana University, and is intended as a guide to help you navigate the financial aspects of your study abroad process. You should always refer to your published BCSP materials and requirements for the most current information and instructions.

Feel free to contact Krista Bethel if you have any questions not addressed in the sections below.

  • Deposit

    After you are accepted to the the BCSP program, you may be required to pay a deposit directly to Indiana University to confirm your participation on the program. The deposit is your responsibility to pay; Northwestern cannot pay or waive study abroad program deposits for students.

  • Northwestern Invoice

    Your Northwestern invoice will be issued through CAESAR on the regular quarterly schedule, and will include only your BCSP tuition and the NU study abroad administrative fee. You can find estimated NU-billed charges and other expenses on your program page; refer to your program's materials for the most current cost information.

    If you receive financial aid and/or loans, these funds will continue to apply directly to your NU account.

    If you are enrolled in the Northwestern 9PAY payment plan, you may still use 9PAY for your NU-billed study abroad expenses, but the amount you owe each month may be different. Contact Krista Bethel just before your study abroad term for a billing estimate to calculate your 9PAY payments.

  • Indiana Invoice

    If you receive an invoice from Indiana University that includes your BCSP tuition, you should not pay it. Northwestern will pay Indiana directly for your study abroad tuition.

    It is your responsibility to pay directly for all other charges abroad, such as your housing.

    Additional fees may apply for certain courses, housing add-ons, field trips or other optional items related to your program. If applicable, you are responsible for paying any supplemental fees directly to Indiana University.
