Fee Payments

To secure a space in the program, students must first complete a digital application in ViaTRM through our Learning Abroad office and then submit this form. Once these two steps are completed, a non-refundable $300 deposit will be charged to student's accounts. Final acceptance into the program will occur upon the receipt of all materials and payment of the deposit fee.

The fee is non-refundable unless we cancel the trip.

 

Cost Savings & Scholarships

Students have found a number of ways to reduce their costs associated with this trip. First, some students use their frequent flier miles to save on airfare costs. Second, many students have convinced their employers to pay for the program as part of an employer's educational reimbursement program. Third, some students who apply for scholarships receive some money, so we strongly recommend that participants apply for scholarships. Information about these can be found on the Learning Abroad Scholarship website.

 


 

International Travel Information

Participants must have a valid passport. Because a copy of your passport is required to sign up for the trip, if you do not have one you should apply for one as soon as possible. Students that are not U.S. citizens may require a Visa to enter/exit Croatia. It is the student's responsibility to verify visa requirements for their nationality. It is also the student's responsibility to acquire all necessary visas. Go to the state department's web site to get more information about international travel.

 


 

Accommodation Information

Students will be provided double rooms (a single room is available for an additional fee) upon arrival on Sunday until departure on Saturday. Breakfast is included, but other meals, phone charges, laundry, and other charges are not. Students will need to give the hotel a credit card upon arrival to cover these additional charges.

If students desire to arrive in Zagreb before Sunday or depart Zagreb after Saturday, all arrangements for accommodations need to be made directly with the hotel. We recommend that students wishing to reserve additional nights should do so as soon as possible to insure the availability of accommodations.
