ABI Payment, Refunds, and Financial Aid

The Alternative Break Immersion fee covers all transportation, lodging, meals, and a participation fee due to the host organization. Costs vary for local, domestic, and international immersions and can be found below. See all ABI sites here.

Payments and Refunds

A $25 application fee is due in order to complete the application process. This will be put toward the total amount due if a student is placed on an immersion and refunded if a student is not placed or drops from an immersion within one week of notification. The deposit is non-refundable after the due date and any monies beyond the deposit will only be returned to a student in the event of an extenuating circumstance and at the discretion of Campus Ministry. Students can either pay the total amount due in one lump sum or can split up payments using the payment schedule below.

Financial Aid

Campus Ministry believes that all students should have the opportunity for an ABI experience regardless of financial constraints and will work with students to make this possible. Financial assistance is available based on need and is awarded on a case-by-case basis. The application for financial assistance is due at the time of the application. Email abi@luc.edu with questions or for more information.
