Since the students who are participating in the program will be fully enrolled at Emory and receive Emory credit, they will be charged regular Emory tuition for participation in the program. The tuition bill will come from Emory's Office of Student Financial Services during the normal billing cycle for the semester. The non-refundable $300 application deposit will be applied towards program tuition. Existing federal and Emory-based financial aid will be applied towards the program costs. Please review the Emory Credit and Cost Policy .


 The "billable subtotal" subtotal above lists the charges that will appear on the Emory OPUS bill. The "non-billable" subtotal above lists the additional estimated expenses. All costs are subject to change.

Students will pay the rent for their accommodation directly to the landlord in Cape Town after their arrival. Note that students pay a R 3000 housing deposit to UCT after having been accepted. This amount is deducted from the rent. Also note that an upfront damages deposit of R 2000 is required upon arrival. This is refundable, after deductions (if any), at the end of the lease period.

Additional expenses (to be paid directly by student) include airfare, personal expenses, visa fees, books, immunizations, local transportation and meals.

Depending on individual travel habits, students need to calculate additional pocket money.

Students with a high level of financial need may qualify for a waiver of the $75 application fee and a deferment of the $300 deposit; students should contact their OISP advisor for details/eligibility. Students who receive the deposit deferment are held accountable to the same refund policy as those students who submit the deposit; you will be billed $300 if you withdraw from the program, in addition to any applicable withdrawal fees.

Students should also budget for vaccinations they may need - an appointment with the travel Nurse at Student Health Services is strongly recommended. Here an overview of what the vaccinations cost. Students on the Emory Healthcare plan are covered for them.
