Summer Cost Calculator

Use our handy summer cost calculator to compare costs for abroad programs, and to see what you might pay abroad vs. what you would pay staying at Vanderbilt. Fees and estimates are current for Summer 2017. Summer 2018 fees will be published at a later date. The costs provided here are for informational purposes only. Please note that program fees are subject to change without notice.

To use the calculator, select the name of a program from the drop-down list. The fixed costs for the program will appear, alongside the costs for the comparable term at Vanderbilt. You can enter your estimate of meals, personal expenses, and airfare; see the notes beneath the cost table for recommendations on these variable costs from our program providers and former students.

Please don't make final decisions on the basis of the numbers reported by this calculator. While we try to ensure that they are accurate and up to date, there may be errors. Any errors are likely to be minor, but please let us know if you find anything that doesn't look right.

  2. For most summer programs, housing is included in the costs above. Housing costs for Vanderbilt are based on the full summer session.

Costs for meals, personal expenses, and airfare will vary depending on personal circumstances. You may estimate these yourself, starting with the information in the Note on Costs below, and add the results to the calculator above.

Your summer abroad is estimated to cost (error!) less than a comparable summer session at Vanderbilt. Fill in cost estimates for both the abroad program and for Vanderbilt to fine-tune the comparison.



Note on Costs: Oops, there has been an error. Please see your GEO study abroad advisor for more detailed information about the costs for this program.

(Note: All summer-term meals on Vanderbilt’s campus are priced a la carte, which is why we do not attempt to estimate them.)

Farecompare is a useful site for estimating airfares.
