Cost Information

Program Cost

The total cost of the program is comprised of the application fee and program fee (airfare included).  All fees are paid at your home institution.

Application Fee

All students are required to pay a nonrefundable application fee of $100 by the February 11, 2023 application deadline. The fee is payable at your home institution.  

Please be aware that payments are reported to TnCIS by your campus rep, and therefore may not update in your student portal before the payment deadline. Contact your campus rep for reporting details or issues.

Please Note: The application fee is nonrefundable once it is paid.

Program Fee

The program fee will cover a round trip economy airfare for a single seat from Nashville, and the cost of all other basic program expenses such as: program lodging, group excursions, required ground transportation, specified meals and limited health insurance. Expenses not covered in the program fee include, but are not limited to: passport, any required tourist visa, costs related to Covid-19 testing for return to the US, textbooks, personal spending money, transportation to and from Nashville, and any costs/fees imposed by the airline beyond the single seat economy airfare. Additional airline fees can include domestic or international baggage cost and may vary by program and/or airline. Additional seat requirements may also be imposed by the airline if they determine you cannot be safely accommodated in a single economy size seat.

Most member institutions provide a tuition waiver for TnCIS programs. Students should contact their TnCIS Campus Rep to find out if tuition is waived. Check with your institution if you have questions. 
**Due to the constant fluctuation in the value of the U.S. Dollar and currencies in
program countries, it is possible that costs may increase. TnCIS reserves the right to
notify students regarding an increase in fees due to exchange rates by March 3, 2023.***
