Money Matters

The biggest factor in deciding when and where to study abroad is often the financial aspect. In fact, too many students assume they cannot afford to participate, missing out on an invaluable opportunity because they are not aware of alternative methods of funding. The Financial Assistance Coordinator at International Programs (IP) is dedicated to helping students through the financial aid application process by conducting financial aid workshops on a regular basis in addition to meeting personally with each student needing assistance. Students who have received some form of financial aid throughout their collegiate careers, as well as those completely new to the process, receive expert care every step of the way. We also help concerned parents! Additionally, students are strongly encouraged to contact the Financial Aid Office at their home school as early as possible. Finally, Florida State students will find additional helpful information on the FSU Financial Aid website.

Please review Understanding the Financial Aid Process for Students Studying Abroad to explore a range of issues for students who anticipate receiving any type of financial assistance. This is a document just for FSU IP students and families, with step-by-step guidance for the process. FSU students, please click here. Non-FSU students, please click here.

Florida-Costa Rica Linkage Institute

The Florida-Costa Rica Linkage Institute, known as FLORICA, was created in 1986, authorized by the Florida Legislature in 1987, and formalized by an agreement signed by the State University System of Florida, the Florida Community College System and the Council of Rectors of Costa Rican Universities (CONARE). Since its beginning, FLORICA has been administered for Costa Rica by CONARE and on behalf of the State of Florida by The Florida State University and Valencia College, with co-directors appointed from each institution.

FLORICA has strong credibility both in Florida and Costa Rica as a stimulus and a catalyst. The Institute has interfaced broadly in Costa Rica with public and private institutions and agencies including all the public universities.

Costa Rican citizens who have applied and been accepted in a Florida public university or community college may apply for out-of-state tuition waivers through the Florida-Costa Rica Institute Non-Resident Tuition Exemption Program.

Florida-France Linkage Institute

The Florida-France Linkage Institute was created by the Legislature of the State of Florida in 1989. Over the years, the scope of activities and outreach of the Institute have grown considerably; in Florida, in France, and in the départments of the French Caribbean. The Florida-France Linkage Institute is administered by The University of South Florida in partnership with Florida State University and Miami-Dade College. The educational mission of each of these institutions lends an unusual and unique diversity to the joint co-sponsorship of the Florida-France Linkage Institute. The Florida-France Linkage Institute is supported on behalf of France by the office of the French Consulate-General in Miami.

The Florida-France Linkage Institute utilizes the resources of the State University System and the Community College System. The Institute also serves as a clearinghouse for inter-institutional and community networking to bring projects and activities to college and university campuses.

Thus, the Florida-France Linkage Institute places a high priority on its mission to serve as a facilitator for international tourism, trade, economic development, and business for the Office of Tourism, Trade and Economic Development (OTTED).

APPLICATION FEE

All study abroad applicants are required to submit a non-refundable, non-transferrable application fee in order to have their application reviewed by International Programs. Paying the application fee does not guarantee admission to a program. Application Fee amounts vary by program.

COMMITMENT FEE

Once admitted to a study abroad program, a nonrefundable Commitment Fee is required to confirm your participation in the program. Commitment Fee amounts vary by program. FSU Applicants expecting to receive financial aid including scholarships, grants, and other sources of assistance have the option to submit a legally binding fee deferment for all or part of the commitment fee, with payment of the balance, if any. Non-FSU Students may not defer the Commitment Fee.

Applicants are liable for the Commitment Fee on the Commitment Fee payment due date.

COMMITMENT FEE PAYMENT DEADLINE

Admitted applicants who have not paid or deferred the non-refundable Commitment Fee in full by the published Commitment Fee payment deadline will be ineligible to participate in the program (i.e. International Programs will change the student's status to cancelled and the student will have no further fee liability). Applicants who apply to a program after the regular Commitment Fee Payment deadline has passed must pay or defer the entire Commitment Fee to be eligible for admittance to a program.

FULL PROGRAM FEE

All admitted applicants must pay or defer the full program fee in accordance with the published full payment date in order to avoid being canceled from the program.

REFUNDS/RELEASE OF LIABILITY OF PROGRAM FEES WHEN IP CANCELS A PROGRAM

Refunds of program fees/release of liability for program fees will be granted when International Programs cancels a program prior to the beginning of the applicable Term, even if the program is shorter than the Full term.

If FSU International Programs cancels a Study Abroad Portion of a program after the start of the Term due to causes beyond the control of FSU International Programs, including, but not limited to, acts of God; natural disasters; riots; war; epidemics; terrorist activities; government restrictions; failure of suppliers, subcontractors, or carriers; or travel warnings or prohibitions issued by the World Health Organization or any U.S. federal government agency, including the Centers for Disease Control and the U.S. Department of State, no refunds of any kind will be issued.

Visa Information

England

A visa is not required for US citizens participating on a study-abroad program under six months. Anyone wishing to partake in two consecutive semesters will likely be required to obtain a visa and should contact an Immigration Specialist at ip-visas@fsu.edu for assistance.

  • Passport Validity: Participants must hold a passport valid for at least six months beyond their intended departure from the UK containing at least two empty visa pages. Keep in mind that the last three pages of your passport are not visa pages.
  • Arrival in the UK: You will be issued an immigration letter before departing the US which explains that you will be partaking on a study abroad programme in the UK. Upon arrival, you must not use the eGates. Instead, you will need to see a Border Force Officer and present them your immigration letter to ensure you receive a short-term student stamp.
  • Flight Restrictions: Due to the relationship between the Republic of Ireland and the United Kingdom, you will not have the opportunity to obtain the necessary student stamp. Therefore, you cannot arrive on a flight that has a connection through Ireland.
  • Non-US Citizens: It is the responsibility of the participant to check the following link to determine if a visa is needed to partake in a study abroad programme in the UK: https://www.gov.uk/check-uk-visa. If a visa is required, please email an Immigration Specialist at ip-visas@fsu.edu and they will assist you to the best of their ability.
  • E.U. Citizens: Please be advised that if you possess dual citizenship with a European country, most countries require that you enter on your European passport. Check the expiration date to ensure it is valid for the duration of your time abroad and if it is not, you should renew it immediately.

Health & Safety

For sixty years, Florida State University's International Programs has been committed to providing a rewarding academic and cultural experience that enriches the lives of our students. Our highest priority is and always has been the welfare and security of our students.

Program directors maintain contact with our Tallahassee office, local authorities, and United States officials, both at home and abroad. Each program holds meetings with students in which safety procedures and precautions are detailed and regularly re-emphasized. Each program has an Emergency Plan which includes details about local health care facilities, meeting points and procedures, and contingency plans and funds should it ever become necessary to evacuate our students.

Students are reminded to inform International Programs of the details of their independent travel details via our online travel form,heed US State Department travel advisories, and take relevant emergency and US Embassy/Consulate contact information with them.

Students venture abroad to experience other cultures, and to gain a deeper appreciation of their role as American citizens in the world. FSU International Programs is fully committed to helping students realize these aspirations in a safe and secure learning environment.

Insurance

International Programs Insurance

All International Programs fees include international medical and evacuation insurance coverage through Cultural Insurance Services International (CISI). A link to our policy is provided below. The coverage will be effective for participants from the day the program starts until the day the program ends. Please note: this policy is NOT intended to replace your domestic coverage. For more information, visit studentinsurance.fsu.edu.

Travel Insurance Information

FSU International Programs encourages program participants to consider purchasing travel insurance. Travel insurance comes in many forms and can protect you in case you need to change your travel plans due to unforeseen circumstances. The coverage ranges from help with lost baggage to delay in flight plans to trip cancellation.

Travel insurance that covers fees associated with changing your airfare plans is especially helpful for those attending programs that require entry or student visas. Immigration approval can take months with regulations changing often that can cause the need to delay or cancel flight plans. Often airfare arrangements are non-refundable or cannot be changed without fee penalties. Certain types of trip cancellation insurance will reimburse you the cost of your airfare or penalty fees. Travel Insurance must cover failure to obtain visa.

You may wish to begin researching travel insurance and trip cancellation policies by using the Travel Insurance Review website. Their Travel Insurance 101: The Complete Guide to Travel Insurance section is particularly helpful for those just beginning their research. They also have a section that allows you to compare different policies.

Travel insurance is also offered through CISI and Travel Insured International. Please note that this plan must be purchased within 21 days of paying your first fee. For example, if looking to insure the cost of the program, the plan must be purchased within 21 days of paying the commitment fee to International Programs. If wishing to insure only the cost of the flight, the plan must be purchased within 21 days of purchasing airfare.
