Financial Information

Cost and Payment

The Haiti program charge is $830 (2016-2017 academic year). The charge does not include the cost of room and board for students who stay on campus during the first week of the January two-week short course. For full-time students, there is no additional charge for tuition, which is included in the spring semester Comprehensive Charge.


Deposits toward the program charge are scheduled throughout the spring semester before the program begins. These deposits include a $250 payment submitted upon application, along with two additional payments as reflected in the schedule below (for the January 2017 program):

  • November 7, 2016 – $290

  • December 5, 2016 – $290


Room and board (if applicable), less any financial aid, will be due January 2.


All payments may be paid by cash, check, or credit card at the Office of Business Services on Hamlett Street. Make checks payable to FHU. To pay with a credit card via phone, contact the Office of Business Services at 731-989-6347 or 731-989-6689.

Financial Aid

All students who plan to participate in any FHU Abroad study abroad program are required to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which must be submitted in order to receive federal financial aid.


The first ten Nursing students and the first ten Business students to apply for the program and pay the deposit will be eligible for a $500 scholarship. The scholarship will be awarded in the spring semester upon successfully passing the course associated with the program.


Any grants and loans that you are eligible for at FHU may be used for your study abroad expenses. In fact, the additional cost of the program can be built into your spring semester's cost of attendance, which might qualify you for additional financial aid. However, all participants will be required to adhere to the fall payment schedule, with deposits due prior to when any financial aid associated with this study abroad program will be available (in January). Participants may be eligible for additional loans in the fall semester that may be used to pay the deposits. Contact the Office of Student Financial Services for more information.

The Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program offers awards to Federal Pell Grant recipients who plan to study abroad. The Gilman Scholarship Program awards 2,300 scholarships of up to $5,000 every year. The FHU Abroad Office is willing to assist students who would like to apply for the Gilman Scholarship at the beginning of the semester before they study abroad.
