Study Abroad Payment Information
Learning Beyond the Classroom
Students attending AMC affiliates Study Abroad Programs would pay their abroad tuition through Anna Maria College. Deposits, orientation, program-sponsored trips and events, health insurance, travel, books and any personal expenses are considered as additional expenses and may be covered in your study abroad program fee. These fees are the responsibility of the student and they are expected to be taken care of by the student directly with the affiliated program of choice.
Upon acceptance into an affiliated study abroad program, the program will prepare a budget sheet for you to use as a financial planning resource for your time abroad. The budget sheet includes all fixed program costs and out-of-pocket expenditures in connection with your program.
You must be registered at AMC and be cleared financially by the Bursar's Office prior to your departure. In the event that you are not financially cleared by the designated date prior to departure, AMC is required to initiate a process of withdrawing your name from the college.
Power of Attorney
If a study abroad student is a recipient of Financial Aid, it is recommended that he or she entrusts a family member or another individual with power of attorney for the period of time that you will be abroad. Power of attorney will enable someone else to sign reimbursement checks and certain forms on your behalf. Obtaining power of attorney involves consultation with an attorney, and you should verify with the study abroad coordinator and Financial Aid Office that someone else can execute the forms you require.
