Charges in Section A are paid directly to the Miami Bursar for the semester(s) you attend the Luxembourg Campus.

1Tuition is set around mid-to-late June each year for the upcoming academic year. This amount reflects in-state tuition; out-of-state students will pay out-of-state tuition like they do for a semester in Oxford.
2If field tour costs are less than estimated, the difference is credited to the student's account. if costs run over, an additional charge is accrued at the end of the semester.
3The Jumbo Pass can be used for train and bus travel anywhere in the country of Luxembourg and is good for one year.

#Not billed through Bursar; student will purchase on their own prior to departure.
You must provide proof of purchase of the GeoBlue overseas accident and sickness coverage. Miami University has a contract with GeoBlue to provide not health insurance, but overseas accidental injury and illness insurance. It is supplemental to health insurance and would be used to cover not only non-routine hospitalization coverage, but can be used by the university to provide family member bedside visits or evacuations from locations should they be needed. GeoBlue takes responsibility for managing the care and the case and can provide a guarantee of payment to international providers, which does not leave the student or program director in a position to have to provide immediate out-of-pocket costs.

5Students tend to travel at a less expensive rate than the average tourist. These figures depend on the exchange rate and personal spending habits which can vary greatly. Students typically spend between $3,000-$7,000 in additional travel and personal expenses. Those students who travel the traditional student way (youth hostels, practical meal choices, few souvenirs) will have a low budget. Figure around 200 Euros per weekend (50 Euro for 2 nights in a youth hostel + meals + museums).
6The local travel agency, AAA Travel Unlimited, organizes an optional group flight that flies into Luxembourg. For the exact cost, contact their office (513-523-7555). Add any expense you incur getting to the US airport. If you wish to take the AAA flight, add the cost to get to its departure point. 
7MUlaa is a debit account available to all current faculty, staff, and students. It can be used for a wide variety of purchases. Everyone has a MUlaa account, all you need to do to use it is deposit money into the account. See Miami IDs for more information about MUlaa.
8While traveling is important, academics should be your number one priority. Attendance is required and exams are given in each course.
