Program Cost Breakdown:

The program fee for the 2024-25 academic year is $17,200. Please note that this fee does not include living expenses. This means you'll need to budget for additional costs such as:

  • Housing: Penn State Global estimates J-1 scholar living costs (housing, utilities, food) to be around $1850 per month.
  • Health Insurance: For reference, Penn State Global's health insurance for J-1 scholars cost $3665 for the 2023-24 year. However, keep in mind that health insurance costs can vary based on your coverage options and needs.
  • Travel: You'll also need to factor in the cost of traveling to and from the US.

Remember: These are just estimates, and your individual costs may vary depending on your lifestyle, family situation, and chosen housing options.
