UNO requires that all students carry special study abroad health insurance while studying abroad. All students must be covered by the insurance policy chosen by the UNO Division of International Education. The cost of this program is $180 per semester, and payment in full is due prior to departure (typically, once you are registered as an exchange student, a $180 per semester fee will be added to your UNO student account). Please ask the Coordinator for a copy of the current health insurance brochure for study abroad and academic exchange, or click here

The amount paid to UNO includes the application fee, tuition and fees for 12 credit hours at UNO, and Study Abroad Health Insurance, all due prior to departure.
Such fees as airfare, room and board, and miscellaneous personal expenses are not included, and vary widely depending upon the host institution and location (Paris will be much more expensive, say, than Prague). Housing arrangements are made via the host institution, and payment is made in the host country according to the arrangements made there.
UNO fees, (subject to change) are currently the following per semester. If you plan to stay for the entire year, double the amount.
LA Resident: $200 (application fee) + $2,486.80 (tuition & fees) + $180 ( health insurance) = $2,866.80 (approximate amount; additional UNO fees may also apply)
Non-resident: $200 (application fee) + $8,248.80 (tuition & fees) + $180 ( health insurance) = $8,628.80 (approximate amount; additional UNO fees may also apply)
Financial aid does apply. Consult with the Program Coordinator and your Financial Aid Counselor to be sure that your financial aid package is correctly applied to your chosen program. This should be taken care of as far in advance as possible.

Students studying overseas are usually required by their host country to obtain a student visa prior to entry into the country. It is crucial that you familiarize yourself with the requirements and regulations of your chosen host country. The US Department of State (DOS) provides a handy web site (http://travel.state.gov/travel/cis_pa_tw/cis/cis_1765.html) to link you to different countries' web sites with information on all kinds of things like getting visas and travelling to those countries.
The US Department of State also has helpful information on travel and study abroad. For their students' pages, go to http://studentsabroad.state.gov/. For the main DOS web site, go to http://travel.state.gov/. It is also recommended that students traveling abroad register for the State Department's Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP). Additional information as well as guidelines can be found at https://step.state.gov/step/
All students should register with the US consulate or embassy nearest them. This registration is quick and easy, and makes it possible for the DOS to assist you in case of emergency. Links to the registration can be found on either site.
