Skidmore in Paris


Participants on a Skidmore in Paris program are charged the Skidmore comprehensive fee for the semester or year in Paris. This fee is equal to Skidmore’s tuition, on campus apartment rate, board, and mandatory fees. In addition to the program fee, we suggest students budget an extra $2,000 to $3,000 for personal expenses. For more information, see information for Program Costs and Billing.

The comprehensive fee covers:

  • Tuition, up to 18 credits per semester
  • Housing with a French host family
  • Meals with host family (seven breakfasts and three dinners per week with your host family)
  • Monthly stipend for meals not provided by host family and transportation/commuting costs within Paris
  • All program-sponsored excursions and activities in Paris and its surroundings
  • International health insurance
  • Orientations at Skidmore and in Paris
  • Administrative support services of the Skidmore staff in Saratoga Springs and in Paris

The program fee does not cover:

  • Passport and visa costs
  • Round-trip travel to/from Paris
  • Housing and meals before or after official program dates
  • Books and supplies
  • Certain course fees in studio art (materials, equipment, and supplies)
  • Personal expenses

Please contact OCSE with any questions.
