CONVERSATIONS TO START HAVING
with your student
Whether you’ve got a more “hands-on” or “hands-off” style, these questions can help spark conversations with your young adult as they navigate the pre-departure process:
We might need to pay for expedited service if your Verto experience starts in less than three months.
Check out the “Details About” section on the bottom of each location page to find your answer (section: visa, passport, and age requirements).
Have you talked with your Verto College Counselor about what schools you are interested in or how to transfer your credits?
Check out the College Counseling page on the Verto Website (Under the Admissions & Financial Services tab).
Have you thought about how to pay for the program? Have you looked at the cost of flights? Will financial assistance cover any of the cost? Do you know when the final payment is due?
Check out the Financial Services and Scholarships page on the Verto website (under the Admissions & Financial Services tab).
How can I send you money? Do you know the exchange rate or if there are ATM fees? Are you setting aside money for unexpected expenses, such as seeing a doctor?
Participants will submit housing preferences in their Student Portal.
Do you need to visit the doctor before you leave? Do you need any vaccinations or to have your medication(s) refilled?
Verto Participants must maintain a working phone with a local number that is NOT dependent on WiFi so Verto can reach any participant in case of an emergency.
