Tuition: Tuition and fees will be charged on a credit hour basis, and the tuition rate will be based on 2015-16 Baylor Law School tuition rates. Current tuition rates are $1,308.00 per quarter hour. Upon successful completion of the program, students will receive 3 semester or 5 quarter hours of credit. Thus, total tuition cost for students (at current rates) will be $6,540.00. In addition, there will be a program fee of $395. Tuition and the program fee will include all required course materials, AHP Insurance (see below) admission fees to program-sponsored field trips, transportation to and from program-sponsored field trips, as well as the food provided at opening and closing receptions and lunches held as part of Academy-related meetings (e.g., breakout sessions).
Housing: Students will live either at Agnes Blackadder Hall or David Russell Apartments. These living accommodations will include a private bedroom and bathroom for each student for 16 nights, for a total cost of $2,000.00, at current exchange rates. This price also includes breakfast every morning for the students in the common areas.
Airfare/Transfer: Based on Baylor Law School's current estimates, a flight from Dallas, Texas (DFW airport) to Edinburgh, Scotland (EDI airport) will cost around $1,800.
AHP Insurance: Baylor requires all students participating in international study programs to purchase a medical insurance policy to supplement any existing personal health coverage. This is due to contingencies that could arise in a foreign country that necessitate extraordinary costs outside the scope of a typical policy. This insurance cost is included in your program fee, and will be purchased by Baylor.
