TCU Approved Programs

Credits

Credit returns as TCU credit that applies towards the TCU GPA and counts towards a student’s major, minor, core, or elective credit hours. As part of their application, students must have their courses pre-approved on the TCU Credit Approval Form.

Students can typically find classes to satisfy major and minor elective credits; general electives; upper-division hours; and much of the TCU Core Curriculum, including FAR, HUM, SSC, HT, LT and RT. Semester students can also earn CA. It is harder to satisfy specific equivalencies for the major or minor and difficult to find NSC, MTH, OCO, and WCO. Students cannot receive CSV, GA, and WEM on these programs.
 
While abroad, students remain currently-enrolled, degree seeking students at TCU. Semester students enroll full-time in 12 – 18 credits. Summer students typically enroll in 3 or 6 credit hours.

Costs

TCU bills tuition and program fees for all TCU-Approved Programs to the TCU Student Account. However, students may need to pay CIEE, IES, or SIT directly for other incidental charges such as housing deposits, confirmation fees, textbooks or optional field trips.
  1. Non-Refundable Enrollment Fee: Variable. Paid directly to CIEE, IES, or SIT to reserve your space in the program.
  2. TCU Tuition: Semester students pay TCU block tuition. Summer students pay TCU tuition per credit hour. For current tuition rates, visit Costs & Refunds.
  3. Program Fee: Includes CIEE, IES, or SIT housing and insurance fees. It may or may not include meals or other items. Consult the program-specific on the CIEE, IES, or SIT website for program fee breakdowns and exact fees.
  4. Additional Expenses: For airfare, visa fees, meals, books, personal spending money and other outside expenses not included in the program fee. Individual budgets are highly variable.
