Cortona Program Costs
The Cortona Program is considered a regular St. Lawrence partner program. Students participating in the Cortona program pay regular St. Lawrence University comprehensive fees. The comprehensive fee covers tuition, room and board with the homestay family, orientation, and program-integrated study tours.
If you receive financial aid, your normal financial aid is applied to the program cost. Contact the Financial Aid Office if you would like information about additional loans for extra costs associated with studying on this program.
The fee does not cover:
transportation to Italy. An Airfare Assistance form will be available online upon acceptance to the program. Students must currently be on financial aid to qualify. In most cases, students must pay the first $750 of the airfare.
Transportation in Italy
visa and permit of stay fees
books, lab and material fees
optional cultural events
Please note that Italy is expensive. See Money Matters for more details.
A non-refundable first payment of $500 is to be made upon acceptance. The remaining sum must be paid upon receipt of bills from St. Lawrence University. Participants in the program will have incurred responsibility for the full cost once they have formally accepted enrollment. Refunds will be made in accordance with the policy outlined in the St. Lawrence catalog, less any money that has been paid out on behalf of the student.
