Paying for Study Abroad

Passports/Visas

  • Passports: Students going abroad must have a passport that is valid for the duration of the program abroad plus 6 months after the program end date. Students are responsible for determining entry and exit requirements for the location of their study abroad program. If you do not yet have a passport, have a passport that has expired or will expire while you are abroad, we strongly urge you to apply for or renew your passport now, as may take 6-12 weeks.
