Internationalizing the college campus has been a hot topic these past few years with more institutions putting an emphasis on increasing for-credit study, internship or research abroad participation. However, institutions struggle to find ways to cover the costs of these experiences while still adhering to regulations. This panel presentation and discussion will focus on study abroad models, cost of attendance procedures, consortium and contractual agreements, regulations and policy implications, scholarship opportunities, alternative funding sources, best practices as well as creative ways of building connections in order to stay informed about policies and procedures to better support students who study abroad.
