Study Abroad News
Ohio State students participating in university-approved third party provider and direct enroll study abroad programs will soon see a decrease in costs to participate in these types of programs. The Ohio Board of Regents recently approved a waiver of tuition for Ohio State students who participate on university-approved third party provider or direct enroll programming while maintaining simultaneous enrollment at Ohio State. The decision follows a recommendation by The Ohio State University Board of Trustees.
Third party provider or direct enroll programming can fill important geographic and/or thematic needs for academic units that wish to expand study abroad opportunities in their respective disciplines. The purpose of the waiver is to make the cost of these programs commensurate with Ohio State study abroad programs. Without the tuition waiver students would in essence pay double tuition.
The 2014 Ohio State Study Abroad Expo will be held on Friday, September 19, 2014 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. in the Buckeye Reading Room in the Thompson Library. During the expo, there will be tables set up so students can speak to experts about studying abroad.
Presented by the Office of International Affairs, the Expo gives you the opportunity to talk one-on-one with study abroad experts and learn more about the myriad of ways to study abroad at Ohio State. First years through seniors will be able to explore programs for all majors in more than 100 countries on all seven continents, as well as learn how to apply for a passport.
The Study Abroad Expo is the perfect opportunity for students to get a sense of the full range of study abroad offerings at Ohio State. Students will also have the opportunity to learn more about how to fund their prospective study abroad experience: representatives from Student Financial Aid, Undergraduate Fellowship Office, the Office of International Affairs, the College of Arts and Sciences, and the Undergraduate Research Office will be on hand to talk more about resources available to students.
