Summer Arabic Program - Fees

​Program Dates: June 20 - August 8, 2018

Students may apply to either the Arabic Language and Culture Program or the Colloquial Lebanese Arabic Program. The tuition fees are obligatory, as is the $200 General Deposit. The fees cover classroom instruction, wireless internet access and all field trips. Other optional fees include health insurance, accommodation and access to AUB's gym and beach. Students may pay the fees all at once, or they may pay a deposit of $500 to hold their place in the program, as long as the total fees are paid by May 15, 2018. The $500 will go towards their tuition fees but is not refundable in case the student does not attend the program. All students attending the program must have health insurance coverage. Students who have an insurance plan that covers them in Lebanon should provide proof of this and sign a health insurance waiver form. Students who are not enrolled in a health insurance plan that covers them in Lebanon should pay the AUB health insurance fee. Students may choose to live in the student dorms on campus or look for their own accommodation off campus. The fee for access to AUB's gym and beach is also optional.
