Cost of Attendance

Below, you'll see estimated costs for students in Josef Korbel School of International Studies programs.

We do not automatically assume students in Korbel will take courses in the summer quarter, so you won't see those costs listed below. Eligibility for financial aid for the summer is limited; if you need aid for the summer term, you must complete a separate application in the spring.
