1Tuition and fees are subject to change.

This fee includes meals only for students living with host families. Students who opt to live in apartments will incur additional costs for meals.

3 International airfare will vary depending on departure city; academic year students who choose to go home for the semester break will incur the cost of an additional flight.

This includes an estimated $500/semester for meals not covered by the room and board charge. This does not include money for extensive personal travel. Students who plan to travel around Jordan or internationally during the term should plan to bring additional funds.

5Students who expect to enroll in the Traditional Islamic Art or Community Based Learning course(s) should plan to spend an additional $100 - $150 on class supplies / local transportation per course.

6Housing deposit is only for students living in apartments and is fully refundable at conclusion of semester if apartment is clean and there has been no damage other than normal wear and tear. Housing deposits are due along with tuition and fees (not at the time of the program deposit).

7Only students who opt to live in apartments will incur this additional expense for meals. Actual cost will vary depending on a student's eating habits.
