The program fee for all courses includes: local accommodations, internal travel, local transfers, program meals, and excursions. Not all meals and personal expenses are covered. Due to the complexities of managing group travel, the Glavin Office uses group bookings whenever possible. Students do not have the option of making their internal transportation (flight, train, bus) arrangements. Some courses may have a charge for use of local facilities or guest lecturers. For all local charges, the Glavin Office negotiates the best deal possible, including reciprocal agreements with host schools, if possible. The faculty flight, accommodation, and daily expenses are included in the program fee charged to students. In some instances, these costs may be subsidized by grants, academic division budgets, or outside gifts. For more information on grants, scholarships, and financial aid to assist with these expenses, see note below.
