Living Costs in Rome
Italy is generally estimated to cost 20% less than the U.S. As Rome is the capital city, you can expect to find a range of price points depending on where you go. In general, a lunch at a mid-level restaurant should cost you no more than €20 and a dinner no more than €35. This cost of course depends on food and drink choices. 

Personal Travel Costs
A significant expense during a study abroad program is students’ personal travel choices. Rome is a wonderful city to travel to and from and is rated as one of the best international airports in Europe. Be mindful of low-cost airlines that may have hidden fees or fly into smaller or secondary airports relative to the main city you are trying to visit. 

In general, all federal financial aid, excluding Federal Work Study, should be available as long as students are earning credits toward their degrees while abroad. This includes Pell Grants, guaranteed student loans, and PLUS Loans. Some states also allow state financial aid to go with students abroad. You should talk to your study abroad or financial aid office about policies with regard to state and institutional aid.

If you are anticipating financial aid that will not be available before your program fee is due, you must arrange for us to receive official written notification of the source, amount, and release date of the funding.


Consult with your home university or visit our Financial Aid page for more information.
