What is covered and what should we expect to pay?

Option 1: Semester abroad

With the semester abroad experience, if a student is traveling on a program affiliated with Queens the students pays their tuition, room and board at Queens just as though he/she will be here for the year. The JBIP funds will cover the airfare, health insurance and any application fees. When the student arrives abroad, tuition is waived at the host university and room and board is provided (a minimum of 19 meals per week). The out-of-pocket costs include passport and visa fees, text books or other course materials, additional independent travel, souvenirs, and additional meals or other personal expenses.

Option 2: Short-Term Faculty-Led Programs

Each study tour is slightly different depending on the location and type of trip; some faculty-led programs have supplemental fees, which must be paid by the student. Each student is also required to pay a $250 deposit, which will be refunded upon successful completion of the program. Study tours generally include international flights, accommodation in hotels, hostels, or dorms, in country transportation, entrance to major historical sites and museums, and most breakfasts are included. The out-of-pocket costs include passport and visa fees, text books or other course materials, additional independent travel, souvenirs, and additional meals or other personal expenses.

Option 3: International Internships

Students who participate in a CIE-sponsored internship can use their JBIP fund to cover program costs. Such costs include residential fees (most commonly with a host family, and including two meals per day) and airfare. Each student is also required to pay a $250 deposit, which will be refunded upon successful completion of the program. The out-of-pocket costs include passport and visa fees, additional independent travel, souvenirs, and additional meals or personal expenses.

Option 4: Language Immersion

Students who go abroad for a language immersion course will also pay a $250 deposit which will be refunded at the successful completion of the international experience. Some programs have supplemental fees, which must be paid by the student. Each student will have an appointment with an international student advisor and will tailor their program by location and language. The JBIP funds typically cover international air travel, home stays and the language courses. The out-of-pocket costs include passport and visa fees, text books or other course materials, additional independent travel, souvenirs, and additional meals or other personal expenses.
