Full-time students can register for these courses without paying additional tuition. The tour agency Celestial Voyagers provides airfare and lodging.

Scholarship opportunities are available. For more information, visit the Global Programs Homepage, or email Dr. Greene or email Lisa Yanonis. All students must be at least 18 years old during the period of travel and pass a judicial affairs review. Our campus also offers the International Studies Minor.

All international travel associated with Penn State Brandywine Global Programs courses requires a passport, and in some cases also a visa. Since required documentation may differ, depending on destination or student's citizenship status, students should check with Celestial Voyagers regarding necessary documentation. Please note that passports and visas are not quickly processed. It will not be possible to travel without the required documentation.

For reasons of liability and risk management, a University-sponsored traveler who wishes to meet with friends, family, or acquaintances abroad must get approval from the program leader well in advance. It is against University policy for a University-sponsored traveler to coordinate with a non-University person to make parallel travel and tour arrangements. Penalties include receiving a zero for the student’s community contribution grade and additional penalties through judicial affairs.
