CIS Abroad Budgets

Everyone is different, and so are our budgets…so, we urge you to think about the lifestyle you lead, and your overall spending plans for your upcoming overseas experience.

CIS Abroad creates budgets for all our Semester, Summer, January, and Intern abroad programs based on the extra expenses you might incur while abroad. If you will be traveling a lot and you like to eat the majority of your meals out, plan to spend additional money.




The additional expenses budget is based on what we think the average participant will spend while abroad. Additional expenses include airfare to and from the program location, food, visa fees, books, transportation within the country, and miscellaneous expenses.

In addition to being a good starting point when coming up with a budget for your overseas experience, our budgets can be used as a reference for Financial Aid as well.
