Tuition and Expenses
Tuition for the four week 2013 Dublin program is $3,400.00. Included in the program tuition are access to the UCD library, computers, and the internet; an initial walking tour of Dublin; an optional field trip to Glendalough, the site of an ancient monastery in the beautiful Wicklow mountains; and a group dinner with Irish barristers and solicitors.
Students are also required to purchase the University of Tulsa's study abroad health insurance coverage for overseas travel. The health insurance coverage is comprehensive and includes medical evacuation and repatriation. You are required to purchase this insurance even if you have full medical coverage with another provider, and cannot be accepted into the program without it. The cost of this insurance is very affordable at $37.90 for the full four weeks.
The housing cost for the 2013 program is $1,110.00 for thirty nights.
Students are responsible for their meals, incidental costs, and transportation costs while in Dublin. Each year, at no extra charge, almost all of the students participating in the program choose to participate in an optional field trip to Glendalough, the site of ancient monasteries in the beautiful Wicklow Mountains, and a trip to an Irish pub for an evening of Irish music. In addition, students will have a long weekend break in the middle of the program and might wish to plan for travel expenses, depending upon the destination they choose.
Unless they have found their own leprechaun, many students participating in the program seek financial aid. Private loans through private providers such as Law Loans or Law Access may be available to U.S. citizens attending American Law Schools.
Tulsa Law students should apply for those loans through the University of Tulsa's Financial Aid Office. Non-Tulsa students should apply for loans through their home schools.
It is the responsibility of each student, particularly non-TU law students participating in financial aid through their home institutions, to have payment arrangements in place by the first day of the program, June 7th. Be sure you have a clear understanding by asking the financial aid office at your school about how they provide aid for study abroad programs through other universities. Some schools may pay TU directly, but most pay a portion and then issue a check directly to the student. However, students receiving a check from their home institution may still have a balance with TU. Please check your TU statement and make sure the balance is paid in full.
Non-U.S. students should contact organizations in their home countries to inquire about the possibility of financial assistance. Students interested in financial aid should contact their respective financial aid offices well before the application deadline to ensure timely availability of funds.
Non-Tulsa students participating in financial aid must have their school's financial aid office send the University of Tulsa a consortium agreement.
Please have your school send your consortium agreement to:

Estimated Student Budget
In the past, students have requested an estimated student budget, which can be found at this link, for purposes of applying for financial aid. Please be aware that expenses vary tremendously depending upon the airfare you choose, as well as your lifestyle, shopping, and travel preferences. Costs will also be affected by the Euro/dollar rate of exchange, which has fluctuated over the past several years.
