Program Cost

We live and work in a world without borders, and employers are looking for global leaders. We want to help you gain a global experience - and an edge in the workplace. That's why we consider all students not currently registered at the University of Dayton for up to $15,000 in scholarships to help cover the cost of tuition, your international airfare and visa, prearranged housing, meals and tours of a few of China's most spectacular cities.

UD students are eligible for a $3,000 travel abroad scholarship, which will help cover the cost of your international airfare, visa costs and excursions/tours. That means, if you're a current UD student, you can study for a semester a the China Institute at the same cost as one on-campus semester at UD.
