Complete the Budget worksheet and Budget forms to determine the costs of your program, following Duquesne University’s Budget Office guidelines.
Special budgetary considerations and policies:
- Tuition Remission/Exchange scholarships do NOT cover short-term study abroad programs. Be certain that students and their parents know this as you are marketing your program. Students must pay the full tuition for the 3 or 6-credit course PLUS any additional costs above the tuition.
- When budgeting for your trip and quoting pricing to students, it is best to underestimate your enrollment. This will make the price slightly higher, but you will avoid the shock and distress of requesting more funds from the students if your enrollment is not as high as you had estimated.
- Notice that your Dean’s signature on the Academic part of this proposal also commits the Dean to cover any possible budget shortfalls. This underlines the necessity for you to engage the budget process carefully and with some “contingency funding” allotment to cover the unexpected (flight problems, currency exchange fluctuations, etc.).
- Note: You must submit a FINAL BUDGET (rather than this Proposed Budget) to the Budget Office 30 days BEFORE departure.
