Financial Policies

Kirkwood’s goal is to develop affordable, quality study abroad programs.  This affordability allows more students the opportunity to participate.  We do not want finances to be a barrier to study abroad.  Kirkwood does not operate programs for profit; but rather ensures each program breaks even in terms of program expenses so that student program fees cover all program expenses. 
 
The average short-term program costs an average of $3,500. Program fees include: airfare, housing, some meals, travel insurance, and some cultural experiences. Program fees do not include personal expenses, passport fees, and tuition.
