Tuition and Program Fees

Tuition is charged on a per credit hour basis.  Tuition is based on the current Regent School of Law per credit hour J.D. tuition rate ($1,140 per credit hour for the 2015-2016 academic year).  Each student will also be charged an additional program fee for administrative and other costs associated with the program.  The cost of tuition and program fees includes all academic instruction and course credit, lectures and briefings, visits to legal institutions, room and board, administrative services, admission to program-sponsored receptions and events, including the Murchison Falls safari, an access fee charged by UCU, all local transportation associated with official program activities, etc.

Anticipated Personal Expenses

Students will be responsible for purchasing their own airline tickets and can expect the tickets to cost approximately $1,800, depending upon the departure airport.  Students will also be responsible for paying the Uganda Visa entry fee of $100, the cost of most lunches, the cost of vaccinations and/or medications, the cost of travel health insurance, and, if applicable, fees for obtaining or renewing passports and the cost of course materials.

Other additional personal expenses/incidentals should be minimal and may include purchasing food (such as from the canteen rather than the cafeteria), laundry services, souvenirs, and other possible excursions (including the optional Jinja white-water rafting trip).  Students will have the opportunity to go shopping during the program.  Further information regarding cash, exchange rates, credit card usage, and ATM services will be provided closer to the commencement of the program.

Balance for tuition and program fees due by May 9, 2016.  Payments should be re-mitted through Genisys, or at Regent’s Business Office. Non-Regent students will be given access to Genisys (Regent’s on-line self-service portal), in order to remit payments.
