Program Fee Bills
IFSA-Butler will send a single bill for the program fee, which includes tuition, services and housing, as well as meals for select programs. Any bills for tuition differentials and/or supplemental housing fees will be sent separately.
Students who opt for independent housing will not be charged the housing component of the program fee. Please see program materials or contact your IFSA-Butler program advisor for independent housing options and procedures.
Our program fees are based on the arts and social science tuition charged by the host university. However, some universities charge a higher tuition for disciplines such as science, engineering and other specialty areas involving laboratory, studio or field work. We pass the charges for special subjects along to the student as a supplemental charge. Supplemental charges are based on previous years’ costs and are subject to change.
The housing component of our program fee is based on the average cost of local student accommodation, usually a shared room in a regular dormitory, apartment or house without any extra features.
When a student is assigned to full-service housing, such as a residential college, there is a supplemental charge for full-service facilities. These fees are estimates based on previous years’ costs and are subject to change. See Supplemental Charges Notes above for details.
**Note for programs marked **: The housing fee for these programs includes the cost of a full meal plan (21 meals per week) in university housing. Exceptions are:
- University of Wollongong: Housing fee covers 17 meals per week
- James Cook University Cairns: Housing fee includes dinner and choice of breakfast or lunch daily
- University of Western Australia: Housing fee includes seven flexible meals per week
Programs without the ** designation do not have meals included in the housing fee.
† Housing Deposit
All students are required to pay a housing deposit of $300. This payment is in addition to the program fee but is due on the same date. The deposit is held separately from the program fee and should be paid separately. The deposit is refunded to the student after the program, less any damages, fines or outstanding debts in the student’s name.
