Payment Process

Study Abroad program payments are divided into four categories:

This non-refundable fee will vary depending on the study abroad program. The amount for each program will be displayed on the online brochure as well as on the cost breakdown you will receive during the mandatory advising. This fee will be billed to your APSU student account after acceptance to the program.

All study abroad program fees/payments MUST be paid into the Study Abroad Program Account at the Browning Business Office Cashier’s window. You cannot pay the study abroad program expenses online or directly to the APSU faculty coordinator. This amount should NOT be paid to your student account and will vary depending on the program.

Students are required to pay in full for program costs by the deadline dates established by the study abroad program. Students can recieve a two-week grace period after the deadlines. Failure to pay before the grace period ends will result in the balance of the program costs being billed to your student account. 

Tuition for study abroad courses should be paid into your student account as they are normally paid for on-campus courses. You can make payments online through OneStop or make payments at the Browning Business Office Cashier’s Window. Tuition should NOT be paid into the study abroad account.

Tuition payments must be received by the deadline date established by the program and no later than the university’s mandatory drop period established for non-payment of tuition. If a student’s courses are dropped due to nonpayment or failure to confirm or validate courses, then the student may be removed from the study abroad program. 

If you are participating in an exchange program that requires you to pay housing and a meal plan at APSU, this amount will be charged to your student account.

If you have any questions about tuition or program fee payments, please contact the Office of Study Abroad and International Exchange for assistance.


If you are enrolled in an approved study abroad program you will be eligible to receive Financial Aid funds. Students in a semester exchange program are required to register full time (minimum of 12 credit hours). The cost of the program will be used by the Office of Financial Aid to determine individual student award amounts. If you plan on using financial aid you need to call the Office of Student Financial Aid at (931) 221-7907 to schedule an appointment with a financial aid study abroad counselor. 

In meeting with the Financial Aid study abroad counselor, it will be determined what funds are available to participate in a study abroad program. Upon review of the eligible funds, a study abroad advancement can be issued (if applicable) to pay for your program cost until your funds are available.

Deadlines to apply for a study abroad advancement:

  • Summer programs: deadline is May 1
  • Winter and Spring Break: deadline is December 1.

If a problem develops with your financial aid and you decide not to participate in the program or any other problem occurs, you are still responsible for repaying the amount borrowed from APSU. Therefore, you should immediately contact the financial aid representative for study abroad to discuss your options. Also, please submit the online cancellation form found under "Withdraw from a Study Abroad Program" on the menu to your left.
