Payment Information


Within 10 days of the date of your acceptance, you must submit a non-refundable $500 enrollment deposit to reserve your place within an Alliance program. Your $500 deposit is applied toward the program fee. If you are accepted to a program after the application deadline, the deposit is due immediately.

Upon approval from the Alliance for Global Education, the $500 deposit may be deferred to a future semester. Late applicants are required to pay the $500 deposit at the time of application.

Payment Options

1. Direct Payment

Payment by Check:
Checks should be payable to the Institute for Study Abroad and mailed to:

6201 Corporate Drive, Suite 200
Indianapolis, IN 46278

A processing fee of $25 will be charged for a check returned for any reason.

Payment by Credit Card:

2. Monthly Payment Plan

For your convenience, we offer an extended payment plan through Higher One called the Tuition Payment Plan. Higher One, acting as our agent, charges participants a service fee for enrollment in their payment plan. This option is not available to summer students.

To enroll in the Tuition Payment Plan, you must first submit your non-refundable $500 deposit to the Alliance. Any amount up to the balance of the program fee may then be paid in five monthly installments for fall or spring programs, or ten monthly installments for full-year programs.

The Tuition Payment Plan may be used together with your financial aid package. If you anticipate the need to pay special course or housing fees, you may build these estimated charges into your Tuition Payment Plan contract. Payments begin in May for fall students and in November for spring students. You will not receive additional statements from us unless your account with Tuition Payment changes or supplemental charges are put on your account.

3. Home School Billing

Certain colleges and universities prefer that we invoice them directly rather than send account statements to their students. Please check with the study abroad advisor on your campus to find out whether arrangements are in place or can be made to have your home institution cover all or part of your fee.

Payment Due Dates

No finance, interest or late charges are imposed when payment is received on or before the due date. We will send you a statement of your account each month until the balance is zero.

A late fee of $50 will be charged for payments not received by the due date.

The full payment due date for fall semester programs is 1 July. Full payment due dates for programs starting in the spring is 1 December and full payment due dates for all summer programs is 1 May.

Financial Aid

If you will be applying any financial aid toward the cost of your Alliance program, you should print, complete, and return the Financial Aid Arrangement form.
