Many students think that studying abroad is something they could never afford. They would love to have the experience, but think it is out of reach for them. There is a common misconception that UHM Study Abroad Center programs are too expensive; this is not necessarily the case. In fact, for some students, studying abroad is actually less expensive than a regular semester at UH-Mānoa. This is especially true for non-resident students, but also for students who pay resident tuition. The cost of many UHM Study Abroad Center programs is comparable to what students pay for attending classes on the UH-Mānoa campus.
Financial aid, scholarships, grants, and loans can all be applied toward the cost of studying abroad, and UHM Financial Aid Services will adjust aid based on students’ study abroad budget.
