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.
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. 

Additional Fees 
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.

Tuition can be paid via the Web, mail, over the phone, or in-person at the Office of Student Financial Services, located on the 6th floor of Myrtle Hall on the Brooklyn campus.

Financial Services
If you are receiving financial aid, you can use it during your semester-long programs. You should make an appointment as soon as possible with your Student Financial Services Counselor. They will assist you with the distribution of your aid to cover the additional costs of studying abroad.
