      - Does not include: books, personal spending money, food or housing during vacation periods or after classes have ended, and independent travel.
      - Fees for participation in programs not sponsored by Kalamazoo College may be higher than the Kalamazoo fee, due to higher operating costs,

      - Indications of additional charges for such programs are given for purposes of illustration only and may not reflect the actual comprehensive fee assessed.
      - In no instance will participants in programs not sponsored by Kalamazoo College pay less than the fee assessed participants in Kalamazoo College programs.
      - Typically, the Center for International Programs publishes the list of study abroad comprehensive fees for the next academic year in the spring term.
      Students wishing to petition for one-time only approval of transfer of credit for a study abroad program not listed above must file their petition by November 1.
      Details and instructions available in the CIP. Programs approved through petition are not eligible for transfer of Kalamazoo financial assistance/scholarships.
