  • Health and Emergency Assistance Insurance through CISI. The ISO will enroll students in the insurance policy for the program dates
Note regarding group meals: 
Every effort will be made to accommodate dietary restrictions during group meals; however, all countries have distinct cuisines along with food preparation techniques, and it is not always possible to address specific food concerns and meet needs.   Program participants are responsible for ensuring their needs can be met for their chosen program itinerary.
Non-Billable, Estimated Expenses:
  • International Airfare
  • Most lunches and dinners
  • Laundry
  • Internet and phone service
  • Course materials
  • India Visa
  • Immunizations for region of travel
Non-billable items posted above are estimates and will differ for each individual depending on their personal needs, course requirements, and personal choices.  Fluctuations in international currency will affect total expenditures. 
  • The estimated airfare listed above is based on fares provided online in June 2018 with departure from Dulles International Airport (IAD) arriving Cochin (COK) with Air India. This is an estimate and fares will change with availability and routing.
  • Estimated cost of non-billable meals assumes moderate restaurants with an average of approximately $28 per day (INR 1,920). Local transportation is the estimated cost of cabs on own or the cost of a cab to and from the airport (one-way).
  • The estimated cost of an E-visa for India is $75. US citizens are required to obtain a visa for travel to India.  The additional cost in the “other” line accounts for any possible immunization costs. 
Other Considerations: Some possible costs are not included in this budget, may not be applicable to all students, and will differ by individual if applicable. These may include but are not limited to:
  • Personal travel beyond the scope of the program,
  • Visa fees (non-US citizens) – Visa fees and regulations are subject to change
  • Passport fees
  • Health and emergency coverage with CISI beyond the program dates
Trip Insurance: The ISO recommends that travelers consider trip insurance that can be tapped in the event travel to or from the education abroad destination is interrupted or in the event itinerary changes become necessary.
