In-country costs on U-Bill includes housing, meals, local transportation, programming, and interpreter. Note: the Nicaragua program course (Socio-Economic Reality of Central America, 2 credit hours) is held during spring (first half semester).

In preparation for their international experiences, study abroad program participants are required to attend a travel consultation delivered by a certified health professional.  These services are offered by a number of medical facilities in the Cedar Valley area and beyond, including the UNI Health Clinic. It is not required that program participants receive their travel consultation specifically at the UNI Health Clinic; however, "Travel Health Consultation (as per Student Health Center -cost varies for other locations)" is the cost of the consultation appointment at the UNI Health Clinic. Any travel immunizations you may receive will be an additional charge.

The program deposit is paid by applicants prior to being accepted into the program. This deposit allows the SAC to start making reservations and bookings on their behalf. This deposit will be subtracted from the sum of in-country program costs prior to being applied to the U-bill.
