Great Personal Growth

Parents of Study Abroad students find that this experience marks a time of great personal growth for their sons and daughters. It’s common for parents to notice that their students discover career direction, grow in spiritual maturity, and gain independence through Study Abroad. Grace is committed to promoting your student’s safety and well-being during the Study Abroad experience. This is a not something that we take lightly, and we want to partner with you in this important step. Thanks for encouraging your student as he or she considers studying abroad.

The cost to study abroad varies according to your student’s destination and program of study. All students who study abroad will pay a program fee to Grace College for their semester or summer abroad. This fee is published with the institution’s other annual costs. Expenses beyond those fees may include airfare, book expenses, passport and visa expenses, meals and airport transportation, so it is best to contact the Global Initiatives Office for more information. Students can also contact the Financial Aid Office for information about their financial aid packages.
