Next Steps



before departure

Talk to your Piedmont Advisors about your circumstances.

  • Financial Aid can help you nail down the exact cost of each program for you. During the fall or spring semesters, your Scholarships and Financial Aid will likely apply.
  • Your Academic Advisor can make sure you are taking classes that keep you track to graduate.
  • Career Services will give you advice about how to make the most of your experience. Travel study is a great way to build employable skills and begin to fill up your resume. Having a plan before you leave is the best way to get the most out of the experience.

Apply for a Passport

  • At times it can take 6-8 months for your passport application to be processed, so apply early.
  • If you already have a passport, check to make sure that it does not expire within 6 months of your RETURN date. You may not be allowed into England by immigration officials if it expires in less than 6 months.

Apply for Scholarships

  • See Travel Study Director for some scholarships that may be able to help you pay for your travel study experience.
  • Consider applying for a frequent flyer program. You will be responsible for purchasing your own flight. Frequent flyer miles can add up quickly and may help you keep the costs low.
