The Rome semester costs approximately $6500 more than a semester on the Irving campus.
For a further breakdown of Irving and Rome tuition costs please review the fee schedule and cost comparison sheet.
Rome Fee: All students pay a Rome Fee the semester before they are to Rome, which covers the
Italian visa fee, Italian public health insurance, Italian permesso tax, book rental,
International Student ID Card, Orientation, local transportation in Rome, and express

Tuition, Room and Board: Tuition is the same for Rome as for Irving. Rome room and board is slightly more
than standard Irving Room and Board. Commuters in Irving will have to factor in the
additional cost of room and board when calculating their Rome costs.
Airfare: Students are encouraged to fly with our group arranged travel to Rome. Group airfare
is estimated at $1500 and must be paid the semester prior to Rome and cannot be financed
through financial aid.
Rome Program Trips Fee: This fee covers the costs of faculty-led trips to such destinations as Assisi, Pompeii,
Florence, Venice and Greece. It also covers transportation costs of day trips and
museum entrance fees for all the trips. This fee will be added to your tuition bill
the semester the student goes to Rome.
Spending Money: The amount of money your student will need for their study abroad semester depends
on where your student will travel and what they want to see and do. Our office recommends
students bring approximately $3750 for spending money.
Payment Procedures: Payment procedures for Rome differ from those for an Irving semester. Students must
either have paid their term bill in full; or must have made payment arrangements with
the Business Office and be current with installment payments in order to receive clearance
for Rome. Students not clear by the published deadline could be assessed a $500 late
