Program Deposit/Confirmation Fee: AMIDEAST charges a $500 non-refundable deposit at the time that the student commits to the study abroad program.  The University of Pennsylvania pays this amount to AMIDEAST as a courtesy for Penn students.  However, Penn students who decide to withdraw after committing to the program will be billed $500 by the University of Pennsylvania to cover the non-refundable deposit. Additional withdrawal fees may apply depending on the date of withdrawal and AMIDEAST's withdrawal policy.
 
Lodging and Meals: Most meals are provided by the host family. Funds for additional meals outside of the lodging and meals charge are included within “personal expenses.”

Roundtrip Flight from Gateway City: The flight expense listed above is the estimated cost of a round trip ticket from a gateway city of New York to Rabat.  However, you may depart from the city of your choice.
***Students living outside the gateway city may need to arrange for a connecting flight to a gateway city at an additional variable cost, to be calculated individually by the student.
