A primary concern of students considering an overseas experience is cost. Therefore it is important to note that students can take advantage of SUNY tuition and apply their financial aid to an overseas experience. Speak with a financial aid advisor at your home campus to discuss how aid applies to overseas programs.
SBU does not issue paper bills. All billing is conducted through the SOLAR system. Students are responsible for paying their bill prior to departure. SBU students on other SUNY programs will be billed for tuition at Stony Brook University.
Tuition costs and fees are subject to change. Please refer to the cost sheet provided by the IAP Office.
