I am interested in getting more information about study abroad. How can I make an appointment with a study abroad advisor?
Information Sessions are designed to provide students with general information about study abroad. These sessions are designed to cover the "big picture". Students will gain an understanding of their program options. Questions are welcomed during the presentation and there will also be time at the end to speak with the advisor.
What does it cost to study abroad on a JMU Program?
It depends on the program type and your residential status. See our Fees Page for a fee overview.
Basic formula for Semester Programs is: Supplemental fee + cost of full-time tuition based on residency and on-campus housing with a 14-meal plan = Total Cost
Basic formula for Short-Term Programs is: Program Fee + Tuition x # of credit hours = Total Cost
Can I apply more than one program?
Do I need to check with the program director before purchasing an airline ticket?
What are passport photos and why do we need to submit them?
The oIP requires passport sized photos to be regulation sized as outlined by the Department of State when applying for a passport. Information can be found on their web site.
Photos can be obtained from numerous stores in the area. CVS on Cantrell Avenue has been the cheapest in the past and they accept JMU Flex. These photos are needed by the program director for various reasons and the number needed is determined by program.
