Despite all the joy that my experience abroad gave me, on the flight home, I felt myself being bothered by something... I knew in that moment 30,000 feet in the air that this trip had changed my life. I could no longer live a jet-set lifestyle in the hopes of seeing every landscape or city skyline that the world had to offer. I needed to make the world a better place.

Money Matters

By planning ahead, almost anyone can afford to study abroad, so start thinking about your finances as early as possible! That way, you can be sure to have enough resources to take full advantage of studying and living in a foreign country and the numerous opportunities it presents. Your travel plans and lifestyle will largely determine the amount of money you will want to have accessible, and it’s also a good idea to have extra funds available to use in the case of an emergency.

As a non-profit, university-based organization, USAC understands the financial pressures students (and parents) face to finance their educations and we are committed to maintaining modest fees for our programs. Additionally, we work to provide scholarships and access to other means of financing in order to provide an affordable study abroad opportunity with USAC.
