UM students pay regular UM tuition to participate in the program, plus the URome program fee of $5050, which covers housing.

There is also a modest International Education and Exchange Programs (IEEP) fee that covers the cost of administering the program.

Other expenses, such as airfare to Rome, meals, books and supplies, the AUR-sponsored excursions, and personal items, are not covered by UM tuition or the URome program fee.
All financial aid, including scholarships and loans, is applicable as though students were studying in Coral Gables.
