Yes, it is! If you can afford to study here at UCI, you can afford to study abroad.The cost of each study abroad program is different and is available on the program’s website. Study abroad programs may cost more, less or the same as studying for the same period of time at UCI. Play close attention to what the cost includes. Look for tuition, housing, meals, airfare, location transportation, books, supplies, personal incidentals, etc.
