Fall and Spring Semester Terms

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.

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 and board and program fee to cover program expenses and is not bound by the specific amounts for each category.
