UGHHHHH STUDENTS!!! And parents too! WHERE do you get the idea that study abroad program fees are the same amount as U of M tuition?? We don't say that, our website doesn't say that, fees are readily available on our website, and we tell all students to meet with financial aid. When I talk to a student who claims two weeks before program start that he (and his dad) thought the program fee was the same amount as tuition here, this tells me he did not read our website or the program provider's website, did not meet with financial aid, and probably didn't attend orientation either. He never emailed me, he may have called but I certainly wouldn't have told him that.... just talked to that student and now am waiting for his dad to call so I can be b*tched out for his son's incompetence. Great.
