Tuition and fees for JMU Short-Term Abroad Programs include University tuition for a standard number of credit hours based on residency and a supplemental program fee. The basic formula: add the supplemental fee to the number of credits at the appropriate credit hour rate per the chart below. This combination of fees will cover enrollment in classes, housing, most or all meals, excursion lodging and transportation, admissions and entry fees, some or all books, and other program activities. Consult program directors for complete details.

Tuition and fees for summer are established by the Board of Visitors in early spring for the upcoming summer term.

Tentative fees will be posted on or before December 1. Fees for Summer 2018 Short-Term Programs will be not be confirmed until mid-March after the enrollment and course registration processes for summer classes is complete.
