Predeparture Services: College Study Abroad Programs, IFSA-Butler
Program advisor advice and toll-free contact
All of our program advisors have studied abroad and are eager to help students prepare for their own experiences. Each program advisor specializes in certain universities and is available to answer parent and study abroad advisor questions. Advisors for our Spanish-speaking programs are fluent speakers of Spanish. Our site includes a list of program advisors for English-speaking programs, our programs in Latin America and our Middle East programs.
Assistance with applications and paperwork
Our program advisors help students choose a university that will be a good academic and cultural match, and they assist with any required university paperwork. Rather than sending expensive mail and faxes to universities abroad, IFSA-Butler provides a convenient U.S. location for all application and housing materials.
Assistance with visa paperwork
Where permitted by a country’s embassy, IFSA-Butler supplies students with visa application instructions and materials. Our advisors are happy to assist students with the application procedures, although applying for and obtaining a visa from a foreign government is always the student’s responsibility.
Monthly payment option
IFSA-Butler gives parents and students the option of monthly payments through enrolling in TuitionPay. TuitionPay charges only a flat fee and no interest for participation.
