  • Students who participate in “Study Abroad Program to Kean USA” need to cover all expenses by their own, including tuition fees, residential fees, a round trip ticket, insurance fee and living expenses. During the program, all above fees are paid directly to Kean USA. Wenzhou-Kean University will refund your tuition and accommodation fees during the attending semesters.
  • If the number of applicants exceeds 20, tuition fees will be charged the same with New Jersey State students; but if applicants are less than 20, the tuition fee will be charged the same with the standard of international students. Meanwhile, tuition fees are calculated in accordance to course credits applied in Kean USA.
  • The WKU tuition fee for this academic year will be refunded or subsequently charged based on “Implementation Rules of Interim Policy on Tuition and Fees”. The duration for calculating the tuition is decided by the student enrollment facts in KU provided by Students Career Development Center, in combination of the beginning and ending time of the courses. The duration for calculating the accommodation fee is based on the data provided by Student Affairs Office. For details, please refer to “Implementation Rules of Interim Policy on Tuition and Fees” (Appendix I and II). If student registers two consecutive long semesters (Spring or Fall semester) in KU, for calculating the tuition fee, their studying time in KU will be regarded as from the beginning day of the first semester to the ending day of the second semester.


All students are required to live in Kean’s residence halls during the first semester. Kean University USA will assign rooms for students before arrival.
