If I’m not currently a student, can I apply for a Study Abroad Program?
Yes. Each program has a significant academic component. Acceptance
to the program will be contingent upon registration for the appropriate
Study Abroad courses.
Will I need a passport?
Yes. Go to the passport link to get a Passport application. If you are not a US citizen, check with your government's consulate, as well as the consulate of the country to which you are traveling to determine if you need a visa.
What if I’m taken ill while abroad?
Every program contains a built-in insurance fee. The policy covers
hospitalization, doctor visits, evacuation, and repatriation.
Can I use US dollars abroad?
Generally, no. But you usually can use your ATM and credit cards. You
will be able to convert dollars to local currency with your ATM card.
Be sure to advise your bank that you’ll be out of the States. Failure to
do so may “flag” your card and make it unusable.
How many faculty will be traveling with me?
We require one faculty member per 16 students. This individual will
also be your instructor.
How many credits can I take?
Summer programs require registration for six credits, and in some cases you may take up to nine credits, check with individual program.
Where will I be staying?
Accommodations will vary from dormitories to hotels. See specific
program information for details.
How is payment made?
You may pay by check or MC/Visa. MC/Visa will incur an additional 3%
How will I know what clothes to take?
Check out Packing Suggestions link. Additionally, the pre-departure orientation session will cover travel-related questions.
