Study Abroad Information for Parents

If you are a parent of a prospective study abroad student we know that you probably have some questions. By filling out our below contact form our study abroad counselors can help provide more in depth advice and answers to the most common questions asked by parents:

  • Accreditation of Foreign Schools
    Not all foreign based Universities offer courses that are compatible with US based institutions. That is why it is helpful to talk to someone who can explain what study abroad programs will provide your prospective students with the proper accredited courses that will transfer back to their home school.
  • In Country Support
    Providing support for students after arrival involves more than just assisting them with classes. Many of our placement services offer 24 hour assistance in case of an emergency.
  • Airport Pickup
    Many of our placement services will pick your students up from the airport and get them immediately settled and acquainted with their new city so they don't have to stress about the small stuff!
  • Health Insurance
    We can assist with finding local and international health coverage plans to make sure your student is covered in case of medical need.
  • Cell Phone Rental
    Trying to research local cell phone plans and sign up for temporary service can be a huge headache. Many of our placement services can give your students a pay as you go cell phone ready to go on their day of arrival, pre-programmed with all the important numbers they need.
  • In Country Weekend & Travel Activities
    Many of our partner companies will provide pre-arranged weekend activities for your students including transportation and entrance admissions to popular attractions free of charge. This allows your students to not worry about navigating around a city, make more productive use of their free time, see more sites they wouldn't see otherwise, and get out while meeting and interacting with other students.
  • Program Dates & Costs
    There are many important steps involved in getting successfully enrolled in a study abroad program. We can help provide more information on application deadlines, specific academic requirements of schools, and available financial aid and scholarships.
  • Travel & Visa Assistance
    We'll help you figure out the most cost effective way for your students to arrive at their destination and can answer any questions you have about visa requirements and application instructions.
