Students will need to develop a budget for expenses (e.g. personal travel, souvenirs) that are not included in the program costs as well as a plan to pay their program costs and other expenses. Each student's budget will vary based on their travel goals and resources. To help students begin this process, the Center for International Education assists all students in completing a Budget Planning Worksheet as part of the mandatory orientation program. You do not need to wait for orientation, however. Use it at any stage of choosing a program. We encourage students to review this budget sheet with parents, especially if they are expecting parents to contribute financially to their study abroad experience. Parents are also welcome to use the worksheet as a planning tool with their student.
