Participants will pay tuition, room, and fees directly to Creighton University and receive the equivalent at the University of Limerick. Students will be responsible for meals, an accommodation deposit, and all traveling expenses. If eligible, institutional aid and federal financial aid are portable. However, once the Creighton aid is subtracted from Limerick's total bill, there must be at least $3,000 that is paid by federal aid or out of pocket. Tuition Remission and FACHEX Tuition Exchange may be portable, but are subject to the $3,000 clause as stated above. Please check with the CU Financial Aid Office for specific inquiries. Participants are also required to purchase Creighton's insurance for international activity (purchased through GEO).
Students live in row houses in Kilmurry Village. Students live with approximately 3 other international and Irish students. Students will pay Creighton at the Kiewit freshman standard double rate that can be found on the Creighton housing website.
Students are required to take a minimum of 15 credit hours (5 courses) while at the University of Limerick.
