Steps to register*
1. Submit this application :
StudioAbroad Application Submission
2. Complete the required waiver & health forms and StudioAbroad Application.
Completed waiver forms will be collected during the first pre-session trip meeting. Please be aware that there is a form that must be signed by a medical professional. Please plan to complete this one ahead of time.
Collected at First meeting:
Student Assumption of Risk Form
MBA Code of Conduct & Photo Release
**Provide a color copy of your passport photo page with the above documents in the first class.
2. Submit a non-refundable $500 deposit.
This amount does go toward the overall travel fee for the trip as posted for each location including the application fee incurred through the Center for International Education. The remaining cost of the travel fees will go on your bursar bill less the deposit amount (not including the $50 app fee). Deposits are made via the online payment system on the student Hub. Go to the "pay my bill link" on the hub or via the self-service box under "my bursar" to make a payment and select the correct trip in the list. Funds cannot be accepted by the MBA office directly.
The deposit is used to pay for your space and book ground and flight itineraries. If you decide not to participate in the trip after the registration deadline as noted above, this money will be used to pay late drop fees for ground and air reservations and will not be returned to you. If you drop after accommodations are booked, there is a chance you will be charged additional funds beyond the deposit amount. This is due to early deadlines from vendors of travel accommodations - hotels, airlines, ground transportation, etc... - that will not refund fees after a certain time. If you need to drop for medical reasons, often a note from a physician confirming the need can be used to attempt for a larger or full refund from a drop deadline from a vendor (but not always).
**Please note that since the trip fees are billed through the Bursar, financial aid assistance is available**
