The overall cost of the GEARE program is $800. Students are required to register for an internship course during their GEARE domestic and GEARE global internship. The cost of the course is $400. Students will receive compensation from their internship employers, which will help to offset the cost for the courses. Compensation for global internships may vary depending on the country and type of internship.

Students study abroad at Purdue student exchange partner universities. They pay their normal tuition and fees to Purdue during the semester abroad. The cost of living at most partner universities is equal or less than living on campus at Purdue.
