Cutting Costs at Syracuse

Syracuse University in New York says it’s cutting its London study-abroad fees by $400 in an attempt to keep demand strong for the program.

The fee cut to $6,300 is a response to the strengthening U.S. dollar, which has risen to a value of $1.41 against the British pound compared to more than $2 in mid-2008.

Syracuse tuition is unchanged whether students pursue coursework on campus or abroad. The university has portable financial aid, too, unlike many institutions that are restricting the use of financial aid to their home campuses.

Other study abroad fees at Syracuse are $6,100 for Beijing, $6,985 for Santiago, and $7,400 each for Strausbourg, Hong Kong, Florence, Madrid. The fees cover transportation and housing costs while abroad.
