Paying Your Bill

Short-Term Faculty-Led Program Students
Students usually must submit a $500 application deposit by TouchNet by the application deadline. Once the application deadline has passed, the deposit often is non-refundable unless the program is cancelled or if you are not accepted.   After you are accepted into an SAU faculty-led study abroad program, you must pay a commitment fee by TouchNet within four weeks after the application deadline. The commitment fee ranges from $750-$1,500 depending on the cost of plane tickets and other initial expenses.  This fee is non-refundable after its due date. The application deposit and commitment fee are applied to your total program costs.Your remaining balance is due prior to your departure and by the specified deadline.  The final payment should be submitted to Student Account Services or on Beeline.

Studying Abroad With a Program Provider
All students participating in a semester-long study abroad program through a program provider will be charged a $300 Study Abroad Fee. This fee will be added to your total program cost. In most cases, St. Ambrose establishes direct billing relationships with our study abroad partners. The direct billing procedure makes it easier to allocate your financial aid to pay study abroad costs. You can expect to receive a bill from St. Ambrose University for your study abroad fees. You can pay your bill through Beeline or directly to Student Accounts. Monthly billing plans cannot be used to pay study abroad costs. The entire program fee must be paid in full prior to your departure.
Once the full payment is received and financial aid is released, St. Ambrose will then pay our partner institution on your behalf. If you receive an invoice directly from the program provider, please contact the Center for International Education. If you withdraw from your study abroad program, you may not be entitled to a refund. Contact your program provider for specific information.
