Before dedicating to go abroad, you may want to plan a budget. Here are some items you should consider in creating it:
SIUE tuition & fees, housing, meals, plane fare, travel to destination, transportation in the country, start-up costs, personal expenses, books and supplies, ISIC, passport, health insurance, immigration registration, course materials, phone, car insurance, Visa, and Internet.
These are all typical expenses you will incur once you go abroad. Other expenses, such as travel and leisure, should also be included in this budget. If you would like further information concerning these costs, please contact our office for further guidance.
