Program Payments


In almost all cases, much of the cost of your study abroad program will be billed directly to you through your Elmhurst College student account; however, you will have to pay some costs directly to the College or to your program provider.  Please refer to the following for information specific to your program:

Long-Term Exchange Programs - ISEP

  • Application fee submitted to "ISEP" with application materials

  • Subsequent payments for tuition, room and board made to your student account per EC payment schedule

Long-Term EC Bilateral Exchange Programs and Direct Enrollment Programs

  • No application fee required

  • Payments for tuition, fees, insurance, room and/or board (per specific agreement) made to your student account per EC payment schedule

All Other Long-Term Programs

  • Application fee submitted to provider along with application materials
  • Deposit submitted to provider upon acceptance to program
  • EC tuition will be billed to your EC student account
  • All other program fees (excluding tuition) will be billed to you directly by program
  • Note: some miscellaneous costs not included in program costs (i.e. health insurance, books, etc.) are the responsibility of the student.
Students who must cancel their study abroad plans for any reason should carefully review the refund policy that applies to their particular program.  In all instances, the application fee for long-term programs is non-refundable. Other costs can sometimes be refunded; however, the amount of any refund is always contingent upon when the cancellation is made and what recoverable costs are available for refund.
