Banking + Money


With advances in technology, it is easier than ever to do banking worldwide. Your son/daughter should be able to carry out most transactions easily while abroad, provided they have informed their home bank that they will be overseas, and set up their account accordingly. 

Before leaving, students should find out if their bank has a website, or put their account online to keep close tabs on activity. It is also good to get a number for assistance from their bank that is not a “1-800” number since many 1-800 numbers cannot be called from overseas. Students should also remember to budget extra money for emergencies! A good way to budget is by arranging a monthly deposit into their ATM account.

Students planning their budgets should allow approximately $1000 a month for food, supplies, and personal expenses.
