All students are required to have passports to travel to Costa Rica. Current processing times are 4-6 weeks, so students should plan on applying for their passport by approximately mid-March.

Students who do not have passports and are struggling to fund the up-front cost of securing a passport ($150) can apply for the Christine Pederson Study Abroad Student Support Grant. Contact Study Abroad for more information about the grant.
Recommendation Instructions
All students must request one recommendation from a recent KU professor or instructor. Please note that students should not request the recommendation from their Collaborative program director.
