The opportunity for involvement in a Junior Year Abroad program is an enhancement to the Vassar educational experience that may or may not be affordable to all students. Students must give careful consideration to the importance of such an experience to their academic program, the cost of studying abroad, and the availability and restrictions of financial aid.
Study abroad programs usually involve expenses in addition to the regular expenses associated with attending the home institution such as personal spending and travel.

It is necessary to take these additional expenses into account as well as the program costs when deciding whether study abroad is an affordable option.
