Every student going abroad through UCCS is required to obtain or show proof of a comprehensive international health insurance plan that includes emergency evacuation and repatriation. UCCS recommends a minimum coverage amount of $200,000.00. Please visit our insurance page for more information and to see the UCCS recommended international health insurance provider. Rates will vary depending on the student and the duration of stay.

Students must obtain a health insurance which is equivalent to the German health insurance. During the International Student Orientation, once in country, a mandatory insurance check is done. If the insurance is not sufficient, the student has to sign up for a German insurance (approx. 80 Euros/month). Most U.S. insurances are not sufficient to be equivalent to German insurance therefore it is recommended that students sign up for German insurance. 

Immigration and Visas

Students who hold a U.S. passport do not need a visa to enter Germany but need to apply for a German residence permit for purposes of study once they arrive in country. In order to obtain this permit, students should expect to purchase German health insurance as well as show proof of financial resources. Currently, (2018) a monthly amount of at least 720.00 Euros for the duration of the stay (8,640.00 for a year). Students may open bank accounts in Germany to assist with this process. Deutsche Bank currently offers limited-withdrawal bank accounts for students, and can find more information here. For step-by-step instructions on opening a blocked bank account, students can refer to this Study in Germany website. Information regarding residency permits can change, so it is always best to refer to the German Missions in the United States website for the most up-to-date and accurate information. 

The Global Engagement Office does not process or issue visas and permits. We are here to advise and assist you with the process, but obtaining this permit is ultimately your responsibility.  

Costs and Tuition

UCCS students that have been accepted to study at Frankfurt as an exchange student will pay tuition and fees to UCCS for the appropriate number of credits (12-15) at their normal UCCS tuition rate. Students should expect to pay the following costs in country and out-of-pocket; airfare, housing, meals, books and supplies. 

Financial Aid

Students are eligible to receive financial aid for this program as long as they maintain full-time status while abroad. Before departure students will need to receive pre-approval on all course work that they intend to take via their academic advisor or a faculty member through a study away form that can be obtained in the Global Engagement Office. Financial aid will not be released early for education abroad purposes. For specific questions regarding financial aid, students should contact the UCCS financial aid office directly.


Students are eligible to continue to receive most scholarships and grants that they would receive normally during the semester as long as there are not stipulations that students need to be on-campus. Students should confirm this with their appropriate contact for the scholarship. Students wishing to apply for scholarships for study abroad should visit our scholarship website.
