  • All applicants will be charged an application fee once they have submitted an application. You are only charged the fee once per term in which you apply, regardless of the number of applications you submit.
  • For exchange programs and nearly all faculty-led programs, UMSL Global will charge tuition to the students’ accounts for the appropriate semester. This tuition is treated like tuition for any UMSL class: the same rates, the same Cashiers Office payment schedule.
  • Most faculty-led programs also require a program fee to cover expenses. UMSL Global will charge the program fee to the students’ accounts for the appropriate semester. Once charged to the student’s account, payments must be made on the normal Cashiers Office payment schedule.
  • Provider program participants are not charged tuition or a program fee by UMSL Global. Instead, they pay fees directly to the program provider.
  • You will have expenses not covered by tuition and/or the program fee, such as airfare, course materials, meals, etc. that you must purchase on your own.
  • Your program’s homepage has a budget sheet listing estimates for these costs in order to give you a better idea of the full cost of a program. These are listed in the “Non-billable” section of the budget sheet.
