JYM Program Fee


2015-16 Program Fee per Semester $10,300

JYM has consistently remained one of the most affordable study abroad programs in Germany. As a self-financing program at Wayne State University, we don't use our program fees to subsidize other programs around the world. This allows us to operate the program at cost, and offer you a study abroad experience that is thousands less than other study abroad programs in Germany. Unless you have money to burn, why pay more for less? See how we compare.

All JYM programs are billed on a per-semester basis.
