Many exhibitors offer programs to the same country, city, and host institution. Review the differences in courses, instructors, credit, housing, meals, activities, cost, calendars, and other areas. Ask the representative what makes their program unique.
The Education Abroad Expo features sponsored UT programs, co-sponsored programs, and non-sponsored programs. The non-sponsored programs are independent programs, not affiliated with UT, but will accept UT students. Exhibitors' participation in the fair does not imply endorsement by The Center for International Studies and Program or by The University of Toledo.
Your college and departmental academic advisers advise on study abroad coursework and college and major/minor requirements, not the exhibitors.
Financial Aid and Study Abroad
Financial aid applies for summer, semester and year options. For non-approved programs, federal and state aid usually can be applied. Ask the Financial Aid Office staff at the expo for guidance.
