Zanzibar Study Abroad

Tuition and Fees

Zanzibar Information

We regret to inform that the Zanzibar Winter Intersession Program has been canceled for the 2014-2015 Winter Intersession due to medical and security concerns. We are hopeful that the medical and security situation in Zanzibar and the region will improve and will continue to monitor the situation. If medical and security conditions improve, we expect the Zanzibar Program to be operational and available to students during the 2015-2016 Winter Intersession. Program dates and additional information will be available in late Spring 2015.


Tuition will be assessed at a rate of $1,500 per credit. Non-Seton Hall students will pay a $250 activity fee and a $200 university fee. Seton Hall students will be assessed a $1,000 administrative fee, rather than a per-credit tuition charge, and a $250 activity fee. 

Students should also anticipate the following additional expenses

  1. Airfare
  2. Accommodation/Transportation
  3. Health Insurance
  4. Visa and Passport Fees
  5. Ground Transportation while in Tanzania
  6. Living Expenses (spending money, food, emergency fund)

AIRFARE
Students are responsible for paying for their own airfare. Students should book their flight to arrive and depart from the Julius Nyerere International Airport in Dar-Es-Salaam .

ACCOMMODATION/TRANSPORTATION
Students will be required to pay approximately $1,750 for housing (double occupancy) during the program and transportation within Tanzania (including air, ground, boat and/or ferry transportation.)

HEALTH INSURANCE
Each student must have a health insurance plan that includes coverage for medical care overseas. If the student does not have such a plan in force, the program can recommend a number of inexpensive insurance plans. Most of the plans offer insurance for a very small premium. Health insurance is mandatory for participation in this program. All health insurance policies must insure the student for hospitalization, medical evacuation and repatriation of remains. You will be required to provide proof of insurance before registration in the program.

VISA AND PASSPORT FEES
A student must possess a valid passport, with an expiration date more than six months beyond our date of departure from Tanzania. A valid visa also is needed for entry into Tanzania. A Tanzanian visa, for U.S. citizens, costs $100. The program will assist in arranging visas for students holding a U.S. passport. As of this writing, a US passport costs $135 ($110 to renew).

STUDENT ACTIVITY FEE
Each student is required to pay a $250 activity fee to cover miscellaneous costs such as tipping and program lunches and dinners.

LIVING EXPENSES
Living expenses will depend on how lavishly or frugally a student wishes to live. We recommend a budget of about $25 a day, which will allow for a comfortable experience. Souvenir, entertainment, and shopping costs are extra and not included in this figure.

BOOKS
The course pak for the Slavery, Trafficking and the Law course will be provided for students free of charge. Students will be responsible for the cost(s) of any additional book(s).

FINANCIAL AID
Financial Aid for the Zanzibar program must be included in your annual Financial Aid budget.
