Semester Global Experiences
Home School Tuition
These programs cost the same as a student pays for a semester's tuition, room, and board at Guilford, plus a plane ticket, visa, and personal spending money. Typically, these are Guilford faculty-led, faculty-coordinated, and a handful of other Guilford-Affiliated programs whose posted cost is at or below $11,500.
Slightly Above Home School Tuition
These programs cost up to $2500 (but usually much less) in addition to what a student pays for a semester's tuition, room, and board at Guilford, plus a plane ticket, visa, and personal spending money. These are always partner programs whose posted cost is at or below $14,000.

Students and parents are strongly encouraged to consult with GOCI staff and their Student Financial Services counselor for programs which incur a surcharge.

All programs are calculated without including the cost of a flight.
Short-Term Gobal Experiences
Three-Week Period Experiences
Three-week experiences in the Autumn and Spring three week intensive periods are classified under a different pricing structure than semester or out-of-term experiences. Many experiences that are international in context during the three-week period incur no additional cost other a student's regular tuition, boarding, and room costs. All experiences within the thee-week periods include flights, accommodations, all in-country transportation, and a stipend for meals while in-country.
Depending on the length of the program and the location in which the program is taking place, there may be a fee associated with registering for a course, typically between (but not limited to) $100 and $2,500. If there is a course fee associated with the program, an estimated fee can be found either by consulting the GOCI office or should be published on the program application page.
Students that live off-campus and/or do not have a meal plan will incur an additional fee in order to participate in three-week experiences. For more information about the off-campus fee for this academic year, please reach out to the GOCI office.
Summer & Autumn/Spring Break Experiences
Faculty-led and Affiliate programs that operate in the summer & break periods vary and cost and length depending on the program. These programs are considered to be out-of-term and regular semester tuition does not cover the cost of these experiences. For more information on specific program costs, please reach out to the GOCI office or refer to the online application page for the program(s).
