AIFS programs are based on the AIFS Program Fees. At the time of application, students pay Ball State a non-refundable deposit of $500. This deposit is credited toward the AIFS Program Fee. In addition to the AIFS Program fee, students are also assessed the Ball State technology fee and a $350 per semester study abroad fee through their eBill for their corresponding term of study. Additional expenses typically include immigration documents, passport, immunizations, additional food, books/supplies. Actual expenses will vary by destination, term of study, and personal spending habits.
