Section 1: Semester Programs

Tuition and fees for JMU Semester Abroad Programs include full-time university tuition based on residency, room, board, and a supplemental program fee. This combination of fees will cover full-time enrollment in classes, housing, board (most or all meals), excursion lodging and transportation, admissions and entry fees, books, and other program activities. Consult program directors for complete details. Supplemental program fees are subject to change due to exchange rate fluctuation.

*It is important to note that airfare to and from your destination is not included in the fees.

Total costs are calculated using rates as determined by the University, but each study abroad program uses the total combination of fees from tuition, room & board, and program fee to cover program expenses and is not bound by the specific amounts for each category.

Tuition and fees rates are established by the JMU Board of Visitors in late spring for the following academic year. See UBO Chart for breakdown by JMU starting term.
