- Program Fees
The total cost of participation in UC Davis Quarter Abroad programs depends upon the program you choose. The total program cost is divided in three separate fees: UC Davis Tuition and Fees, Quarter Abroad Fee and Accommodations and Services Abroad Fee. There are some costs that apply to all programs and other costs that vary depending on the program.
- Quarter Abroad Fee: This fee covers Quarter Abroad operations expenses and also includes related items such as course materials and travel and accident insurance. The $300 non-refundable deposit goes toward this fee.
- UC Davis Tuition & Fees: This incldues campus-based fees that support many programs, facilities and services for students, including financial aid. Most fees were enacted by student vote. For details on these fees, visit budget.ucdavis.edu. Includes non-resident tuition and UC SHIP if applicable. Fees and tuition are subject to legislative and gubernatorial action and may change without notice.
- Accommodations and Services Abroad Fee: The Accommodations and Services Abroad Fee varies for each program. This fee includes but is not limited to accommodations, select meals, group excursions and some course-related printed items. Travel to and from the program site is NOT included.
Handling your finances for your Quarter Abroad program is pretty simple, because the fees and payments process works just like it does for a regular quarter here at UC Davis, and you use all the same tools to manage your finances.
To plan accurately for your time abroad, there are a few things you need to know about how fees and payments work for Quarter Abroad programs.
- Your fees (regular UC Davis Tuition and Fees, Quarter Abroad Fee and Accommodations and Services Abroad Fee) will be posted to your student account. You’ll be able to view your fees and pay your fees through MyBill or at the UC Davis Cashier’s Office.
- All fees (other than the $300 non-refundable deposit) are due at the same time as the regular fee payment deadline for the quarter.
- Financial aid funds will be disbursed into your student account as usual. You can work directly with the Financial Aid Office to request additional aid if you need it for the program.
Follow these steps below to handle your fees for your Quarter Abroad program:
- Find out what your fees are: First, you can review the “Cost” section of your Quarter Abroad program page to find out what fees will be billed to your student account and what expenses you will pay out of pocket.
- Find out when your fees are due: All fees for Quarter Abroad programs are due on the same date as the UC Davis Tuition and Fees for the quarter in which the program takes place.
- Make payments for fees: You can make an online payment for your Quarter Abroad program through the MyBill system or visit the Student Accounting website to learn about other options for making payments. Contact Student Accounting or the Cashier’s Office if you have questions about how to pay your bill. More information about fee payment is available in the next section.
- Verify that your fees are paid by the fee payment deadline: Once you have completed the above steps, be sure to check your student account to verify all your fees are paid by the fee payment deadline.
- Making Payments
Fees are due March 15th for Quarter Abroad Spring programs and September 15th for Quarter Abroad Fall programs.
Not Paying your fees can have serious repercussions such as a hold on your account, being dropped from classes for non-payment, being assessed a late fee, and being sent to a collections agency.
Students are responsible for all bills incurred abroad. Failure to resolve any outstanding bills may compromise the student's standing with UC Davis.
Note: The $300 non-refundable deposit is due before submitting your enrollment in your UC Davis Study Abroad Account.

- Using Financial Aid to Pay for Your Program
Review information about Financial Aid, Scholarships and Budgeting for Study Abroad in our Resources section.
Typically the financial aid that you receive on campus can be applied to study abroad, and your aid may be adjusted to account for added program costs, such as airfare and local housing costs. Even if you do not normally qualify for financial aid while on campus, you might qualify for aid for study abroad, depending on additional costs and your particular situation. Always consult with the Financial Aid Office before enrolling in a program.
General Points on Using Financial Aid to Pay for Your Program
Timelines for programs are such that your adjusted financial aid package may not be finalized until late in the process (when you are already liable for program fees), so it is important to stay on top of things.
- Inform yourself beforehand of all of the steps involved.
- Submit materials, including the FAFSA or CA Dream Act Application, on time and fully completed.
- Master the options and limits of aid in your particular case.
- Contact the Financial Aid Office with questions.
- Follow up to ensure your aid is disbursed.
- If you need a Visa Support Letter from the Financial Aid Office, please use the request tool on their website.
Specific Points on Financial Aid for Quarter Abroad Programs:
The Financial Aid and Scholarships Office will utilitze cost information provided by the Global Learning Hub to adjust your overall Cost of Attendance on MyAwards. you can then utilize financial aid, scholarships and/or loans to help cover your abroad expenses. If you receive University grants - UC Grant, UC BLue & Gold and /or UC Aggie Grant Plan - these funds are awarded based on the cost of attendance at UC Davis, and do not increase even though Quarter Abroad programs have costs higher than UC Davis' standard cost.
Note for Intercampus Visitor (ICV) students: Your financial aid will come from UC Davis for the Quarter you are participating in your program. Be sure to talk to a financial aid officer at your home campus and UC Davis about your plans to participate in a Study Abroad program while doing the Intercampus Visitor program.
Direct Deposit for Financial Aid Disbursement: If you are traveling before your program's start date, any financial aid funds remaining after payment of fees on your account may be issues after you depart; therefore, it is important that you sign up for Direct Deposit of aid disbursements. Be sure to include your UC Davis email address so that you will receive notifications of your deposit. if you have questions regarding this service, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
