WILL I BE ABLE TO APPLY FINANCIAL AID TO THE COST OF THE TRIP?

Possibly. It all depends upon your current financial aid standing, but financial aid could potentially cover even the travel costs. Speak to your Financial Aid representative to determine your eligibility.

WILL I NEED A PASSPORT?

YES! If you do not have one already, or yours has expired, start applying for one TODAY! This can be a long process (4-8 weeks!) and could prevent you from being able to go. (No visas are required if you currently hold a valid USA passport.) Click here to apply
