The pricing above reflects the previous year’s program cost and is only an ESTIMATE until the final costs are posted. Program costs may change due to fluctuation in currency exchange rates, tuition increases, contracted agencies, or number of participants. Billable Items are usually paid directly to Drake University through your Drake University student account. Please note that the billable cost does not include additional expenses associated with your program, which are your responsibility - please see the Estimated Additional costs (Non-Billable) section of the budget for estimates.

All students are responsible for reserving housing at their host institution.  The cost estimated above reflects on-campus university housing. Costs may vary if a different source of housing is chosen. Contact your Education Abroad Advisor and visit the program page to see if more information is available.  It is your responsibility to pay for your housing selection directly, as it will NOT be charged on your student tuition account.

Estimated additional costs are not billed to your Drake University student tuition account and include costs such as, airfare, airport tax, housing, meals, books and supplies, passport, visa, immunizations, medical visit, personal expenses, emergency funds or the cost of any independent travel. Costs can be affected by individual budgetary habits and currency fluctuations. The responsibility lies on the student to budget accordingly and responsibly. 
Estimated Additional Program Expenses  include KGU orientation and program fee, mandatory Japanese Health Insurance, airport pick up, and a hotel for the first night prior to orientation. This estimate does not include the cost of any optional program excursions.
Students are generally able to apply their regular Financial Aid and scholarships on an exchange program similarly to how they would apply at Drake. Students should meet with a Financial Aid Advisor to confirm this. Any Financial Aid and scholarships will be applied to your Drake student account according to the regular disbursement schedules.
