South India Term Abroad comprehensive fees are unique. They are intended to be inclusive of your costs while studying and living in Madurai. Comprehensive fees include roundtrip international airfare to/from the US group departure city (varies by semester), a living stipend, international medical and travel insurance, room & board, all tours and field trips during the semester, visa authorization, and tuition.
Out-of-pocket expenses are limited to your pre-departure costs: passport and student visa fees, medical expenses (vaccinations and prescriptions), and domestic travel to the group departure airport
Some students don’t spend any money beyond their SITA living stipend. Most students do supplement the stipend, however, for buying gifts, boutique clothes, special meals at more expensive restaurants or hotels, communication costs, and travel (traveling by bus is inexpensive, while auto rickshaws and now taxis will be more expensive).
Each college or university manages comprehensive fees and billing differently. Please speak with your study abroad office to determine your total costs and financial aid. Financial aid will apply for students from SITA member schools, and from many non-member schools as well.
