The cost of a student's 1st semester in Dublin as opposed to Waco will be comparable and will include tuition, housing, and flights to Dublin.

Monthly Group Dinner
All Baylor academic scholarships and need-based awards will apply to this program as if you were on the Waco campus. Learn more about all the scholarship opportunities and financial aid available to Baylor students here. More than 90% of Baylor undergraduates receive financial aid, so this "total" could look much different for you based on your situation.
INDIRECT COSTS: Keep in mind that these costs do not include meals, passport costs, personal expenses, books, and supplies that you'll need during your freshman fall semester.
MEAL COSTS: In Dublin, each student apartment has its own en-suite kitchen. Therefore, we encourage students to save on meal costs by going grocery shopping and cooking at home most days. UCD provides a number of restaurants, coffee shops and cafe in various locations across campus. With over 20 units, they ensure you're never too far away from a hot meal, refreshments or a quick snack.
ADDITIONAL COSTS: An Irish immigration visa fee is required and costs 300 Euros (328 US dollars). Students will need a credit card with them to submit this payment. UCD staff will help students with this once they are in Ireland. For some events such as Leinster Rugby and Abbey Theatre, UCD students get heavily discounted tickets. Students should purchase a Student Leap Card that allows them to use any form of public transport in Dublin at a discounted rate.
Adding an international plan to a U.S. phone plan is expensive! UCD recommends students buy an Irish sim card to place inside an UNLOCKED U.S. phone as it is much cheaper. 99% of students use the Three Network which is approximately 20 Euros per month ($11).
