Tuition & Fees
Students must pay Pratt tuition and applicable fees while abroad for semester-long programs, just as they would while studying at the Pratt campus. Detailed information regarding costs can be found on the Undergraduate Tuition and Fees page.
- Fees: cannot be waived because you will receive similar services at the host school and Pratt will be providing the services to the students from the host school, except for Student Health Services Fees and Student Activities Fees, which are waived for outbound study abroad students.
- Health Insurance: You must pay for health insurance. See the Education Abroad Q&A for more details.
- Housing: Pratt Housing will be charged for students going to Bauhaus University and Musashino University of Arts, as accommodations are provided as part of the exchange agreement. Students must budget for and arrange their own accommodations if participating in other programs.
Students for summer/spring break programs must pay the cost of each program, which will change depending on the location and duration of the program. After the student is accepted into the program, the student will need to make a deposit of $500 in order to save the spot in the program and then pay the full price before departure.
These vary from country to country and include:
- Visa fee
- Residency fee (students are responsible for their own travel, housing, and dining arrangements, as well as any other personal expenses for the duration of their program).
- Students going to schools in Germany must pay some fees required of all foreign students in Germany.
Pratt students are required to enroll in health insurance through GeoBlue for the duration of their time abroad. This is mandatory, no exceptions will be made. This is the policy of Pratt Institute. Regardless of any health insurance students may already have for the states or abroad, GeoBlue must be used for the duration of Pratt facilitated programs.
Pratt Institute will no longer accept debit/credit cards directly in-person, by mail, fax, or over the phone for payment of tuition, housing, meal plan, and fees. However, debit/credit cards can be used to pay online through Point & Pay via your MyPratt Portal account.
Point & Pay is an independent third-party processor that accepts payments credit card payments and charges a non-refundable convenience fee based on the amount charged. Credit card payments will incur a fee of 2.5% PER TRANSACTION which is assessed by Point & Pay our third-party payment processor and not Pratt. The convenience fee is paid in full to and retained by Point & Pay and Pratt Institute does not receive any of this fee. The charge for the convenience fee will appear separately from the payment on your card statement. To make a debit/credit card payment, log in to MyPratt portal using your credentials as instructed below.
