Program Costs: Fall
The program fees for the UGA en France fall program are tentatively set at $8750. Note that this is a semester-long program and that the number of participants is likely to be smaller than during the summer, hence the higher price tag. However, if you look at the following comparison, you’ll see that studying abroad for a semester is, in the long run, less expensive than a semester on campus for non-resident students!! And for those who are in-state students, the additional costs of the fall are comparable to that of the summer program! Click here to see a listing of what is covered by the $8700 in program fees.
