2024 Program Fees
|Application Fee (Non-Refundable):
The program fee covers all tuition, room/ board, meals, course materials, and program-related trips. Please, note this does not include travel costs to or from the program.
Financial aid is available to students with demonstrated financial need. To apply, download and complete the appropriate form(s). Your completed financial aid application, as well as the required supplemental documents, must be uploaded to CollegeNet within 10 days of submitting your program application. Please upload your documents as one combined pdf file onto your CollegeNet home dashboard.
You must submit your completed financial aid application (including the required supplemental documents) within 10 days of submitting your completed program application:
– Financial Aid Application (US Citizens & Permanent Residents)
– Financial Aid Application (Foreign Nationals)
– Non-custodial Parent Form (US Citizens & Permanent Residents)
– Non-custodial Parent Form (Canada)
After you have submitted your program application, please follow the steps below:
- Log onto your College Net account
- Click “Online Application” or “Manage Your Account”
- Click “View Checklist”
- The upload button for the financial aid application is located at the bottom of the page
A non-refundable deposit of $1000 USD (deposit amounts for financial aid recipients will vary, and this amount will be displayed on your CollegeNet online enrollment form) is due at the time of enrollment (date indicated on your admission letter). The remaining balance is due in full on the date reflected on your tuition bill. Installment payments can be made through Penn Pay until the due date. After completing your enrollment form, you will automatically be routed to the deposit page for payment. If you experience any issues with the enrollment or deposit payment page, please contact CollegeNET directly.
Once you are enrolled in ESAP, a bill will be generated (later) by Penn’s Student Registration & Financial Services. We will send an email with information on how to log into Penn Pay and access your bill. However, please note that our office DOES NOT handle billing, and all applicable inquiries must be made directly to SRFS. The balance due (minus the amount of your deposit payment) will be due on the date specified on your bill.* If you received a financial aid award, this amount will be deducted from your balance before your bill is generated. The university must receive the full amount due on or before the bill’s due date. If full payment is not received by the due date, a late penalty of 1.5% of the amount past due will be assessed, and your enrollment in the program will be jeopardized.
*For priority applicants, bills will typically be available at the beginning of May and will be due at the end of May. For non-priority applicants, your bill will be disbursed at the end of May or June and will be due at the end of June or July (depending on the date you were enrolled in the program).*
Please note that students should plan to have access to funds for any personal spending (toiletries, snacks, souvenirs, etc).
International students should also plan to accommodate additional fees such as visa application, SEVIS, and shipping fees.
WITHDRAWING FROM ESAP:
If you need to withdraw from the program after submitting your deposit payment, you will receive a refund in accordance with the schedule below. Written requests must be sent via email. Students dismissed from the program for disciplinary reasons, or those that leave voluntarily, will not receive a refund.
NOTE: All requests for a refund must be made in writing and properly dated. Refunds are given based on the date in which we receive your formal written request to withdraw from the program and receive a refund. If your bill has been generated, and your child withdraws AFTER any of the posted refund request dates, you are STILL responsible for the program balance (based on the table below). There are NO exceptions.
