The IARU Global Summer Program provides cost information for each course option. To view cost information, select your GSP course and click on Costs. Here you can find estimates for:
- Tuition fees
- Field trips
- Living expenses
Cost estimates are listed in the currency of the host country, but may be converted to U.S. currency using a currency converter. Please note that airfare is not included in cost estimates.
Depending on your program of choice, you may be able to apply your financial aid towards the cost of select GSP courses, including tuition as well as out of pocket expenses such as airfare, meals, and books.
- UC Berkeley courses taken through GSP are considered UC coursework and may qualify for summer financial aid. Please note that the UCB1: Environmental Leadership Program option is not eligible for financial aid.
- GSP courses taken at other IARU universities are considered consortium programs for financial aid purposes. If you and your GSP course are eligible for financial aid, you must complete a Consortium Study Agreement with the Financial Aid & Scholarships Office.
Visit the Financial Aid and Scholarships Office website for information on how financial aid works with your program.
