This cost reflects the 18-19 Academic Year program cost estimates. 17-18 program cost estimates can be found in the student handbook, which is available in the term prior to departure, or in the Finance section of the Global Portal.  Housing and Program Fee cost estimates are calculated one year in advance of the program's dates.  Unexpected increases do occur.  The IGSD will do our best to inform students of increases over $200. 

Paraguay Note: The Iguazu Falls and Itaipu Dam Excursion is an optional excursion.  Students will be asked to commit to the excursion prior to departure in order for reservations to be made. Most students, including US citizens, will require a Brazilian visa in order to participate in this excursion.  The cost of the visa, as well as the cost of the excursion, should be budgeted for in advance.  If you do not participate in the excursion, you will be responsible for making your own arrangements for the weekend, including housing arrangements if you do not plan to stay in the WPI arranged housing at the Fundacion Paraguaya.
