More helpful info:
-  Can financial aid be used to help pay for student teaching abroad?  YES!  Federal and state financial aid, as well as institutional scholarships, may be used to fund your study abroad.   The Approval Form in your application materials requires you to meet with a financial aid officer to answer any questions you may have on financing your experience.
-  The WSU application process requires a non-refundable $65 application fee.  Educators Abroad requires a $500 confirmation deposit to begin working on your placement. This deposit will be credited to your program cost.
-  Educators Abroad will invoice WSU for the program cost (approximately $5450 for a 16 week experience less the $500 deposit).  WSU will place this fee plus a $460 administrative fee on your account, to be paid according to the regular WSU payment schedule. 
-  Housing and meals are paid by the student and are typically arranged in cooperation with the host school. An average budget for room and board is $125 per week.
-  Non-WSU students will be billed on their WSU guest student account and pay their fees according to the regular WSU payment schedule.  If financial aid is involved, a consortium agreement must be in place (contact your home university Financial Aid Office).
