“Studying abroad is way too expensive; I don’t think I can afford it.” 

You continue to pay your home school tuition and your financial aid package is unchanged. Keep in mind, though, that the cost of living varies based on location and the type of accommodation you choose (i.e., apartment, homestay, or dormitory). Travel and visa application fees also vary.

“Is this the right study abroad option for me?”

Before you decide, understand that exchange programs are ideal for students who exhibit personal responsibility and independence. Managing the study abroad experience, achieving your goals, and developing new relationships require self-driven effort.
