Passport & Visa
Students are responsible for obtaining a passport and Visa to enter India. Students need to have a passport in order to get a Visa. Keep in mind that passports can take up to 6 weeks to be issued or you can pay up to $60+ for rush service. Go to the following web sites for more details.
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 a employer's educational reimbursement program. Third, some students who apply for scholarships receive some money, so we strongly recommend that participants apply for scholarships.
