The program fee does not include insurance, incidentals, the cost of acquiring a valid passport, airfares, airport taxes, or the cost of non-program excursions, extra-curricular activities, or any trips.

Though the Universidad Antonio Ruiz de Montoya offers basic and emergency services through an agreement with the nearby Clínica Stella Maris, students are responsible for their health insurance coverage while abroad and in the program. Students are most strongly advised to inquire with their health insurance providers and to make sure that they are adequately covered while in Perú. Students are also strongly advised to obtain travel insurance covering them against loss of personal property while in Perú.
