Airfare to Paris
Airfare from the United States to Paris can range between $500 and $1200 depending on the season, starting point, and how far in advance the ticket was purchased. Paris is a very well-served destination in terms of airline flights from the United States and students who book their ticket early should be able to find a relatively large set of options. 
We designate a group arrival time and day for admitted students a few months before the program start date and recommend that students arrive within a several hour period. Students who arrive on the designated day will be met at Charles de Gaulle airport by one of our representatives and will have complimentary transfer from the airport to central Paris. 
Students can make travel arrangements to arrive on alternate dates or flights. Students who arrive on an alternate date will have to take a taxi to the student apartments.
