Winter Term Cost 

The Winter Term program cost will be billed to your student account  prior to December 1. A non-refundable deposit of $500, which will be applied to the total cost of the program, is required with your application. Winter Term TUITION is NOT INCLUDED in the program cost.
The estimated cost quoted for each program is approximate and subject to change based on factors such as program design, final itinerary, fluctuating airline prices and fuel surcharges, fluctuating exchange rates, hotel rates, and final number of participants confirmed in each program.

Program costs include the cost of one bag where applicable. Participants are responsible for any baggage charges incurred thereafter for extra baggage and/or weight. Exact quotes will be furnished to you when the itinerary is confirmed and the final number of participants is known. Every effort will be made to insure that the overall program cost will not significantly vary from the estimated price quoted in this publication.

In most cases, program costs include the following:

  • Round-trip airfare from Tampa
  • Transfers between airport and hotel
  • Accommodations with breakfast
  • Supplementary food allowance
  • Designated entertainment expenses
  • Admissions and entrance fees
  • Other costs included as part of the program design

Items typically not included are:

  • Excess baggage charges
  • Transportation to/from the point of departure
  • Textbooks
  • Food and housing required before departure and after return
  • Personal expenses and travel costs during free weekends
  • Passports
  • Travel visas (for holders of non-US passports)
  • Inoculations
  • Souvenirs, tips and porters, etc.
There may be exceptions to the above, so check with Global Education for specifics.


Short Term Travel Scholarship

An educational experience abroad is a key feature of an Eckerd College education, and we offer Winter Term travel scholarships each year, based on student financial need to help defray a portion of the cost of international travel. Preference may be given to students who have not previously studied abroad. Students may apply for the scholarship at the same time they complete the Winter Term application. Receiving a scholarship does not guarantee a student acceptance into the Winter Term program. The application process for a winter term program is separate from the scholarship application.

Honors Travel Scholarship

Students in the Honors Program who wish to utilize their Honors Travel Scholarship toward an upcoming study abroad program must notify the Office of Global Education.
