Upon acceptance to the program, AMIDEAST charges a $500 non-refundable deposit.  The University of Pennsylvania pays this amount to AMIDEAST as a courtesy for Penn students.  However, Penn students who decide not to enroll in the program will be billed $500 by the University of Pennsylvania to cover the non-refundable deposit.  An additional withdrawal fee may apply depending on time of withdrawal and AMIDEAST's  withdrawal policy.

Please note that the "personal expenses" cover only some basic necessities and does not include students' discretionary spending (e.g. entertainment and travel).  It also includes funds for meals not covered by the lodging and meals charge.

The flight expense listed above is the estimated cost of a round trip ticket from the gateway city of New York to Rabat.  However, you may depart from the city of your choice.
***Additionally, students living outside of New York may need to arrange for a connecting flight.  These are additional variable costs, to be calculated individually by the student.

Exchange rate: US $1.00 = 9.71 Moroccan Dirham (MAD) (November 2015)
