Additional Fees
Many study abroad programs include services and excursions in their fees that would not typically be covered by Lasell tuition. In these instances, the fees are the responsibility of the student. Examples of additional fees may include but are not limited to: an application fee, a housing damage deposit, international insurance fees, optional excursion fees, visa fees, and international airfare.

$500 Non-Refundable Study Abroad Deposit and Administrative Fee
Students participating in a Lasell semester study abroad program are required to make a $500 non-refundable study abroad deposit to confirm their intent to study abroad in the following semester. This deposit covers the corresponding $500 Study Abroad Administrative Fee. The Study Abroad Administrative Fee replaces deposits and other additional payments that students formerly paid directly to their study abroad program. Under the new, more transparent system, all Lasell study abroad students pay the same $500 fee, at the same time, to avoid unanticipated payments at a later date.

Upon receipt of acceptance notification from Lasell's Office of International Services, students will be given approximately 2 weeks to pay their Study Abroad Deposit. The $500 deposit is non-refundable under all circumstances, and represents a firm commitment to study abroad.

Every student receives services covered by the Study Abroad Administrative Fee, such as advising on study abroad options, advising on details related to the host institution and country, assistance with program application procedures, faculty review of courses, visa and scholarship guidance, pre-departure resource tools, pre-departure orientation, use of office resources, and transcript processing.

Tuition Exchange and Tuition Waiver Benefits 
Tuition exchange and tuition waiver benefits do not apply to any semester in which a student studies abroad.
