McDaniel College Budapest' s goal has always been to offer an outstanding liberal arts education at an affordable cost to international students. The regular academic year consists of a fall semester, the spring semester, and a January or June Term and students enrolling for 12 or more credits each semester are charged tuition as full-time students. Full-time students are entitled to enroll in one January or June Term course without paying additional tuition.
Tuition costs are divided into two half-year billings, each due prior to registration for classes at the beginning of the semester.
McDaniel College Budapest and the main campus in Maryland encourage Budapest students to take advantage of the unique opportunity to transfer to the main campus to complete the upper two years of their studies. Financial support is extended to these students through a 50% reduction in the tuition fees charged by the main campus.
