LONDON 2014 / 2015
Letter from the President 2 Dear Students, Parents and Colleagues, I still vividly recall the first time I landed in a foreign country as a young person. My senses felt overloaded; everything was utterly different. And my world changed. The impact of study abroad on a young personâ€™s life is immeasurable. Years later, while living in Italy with my family for 8 years and working in the field of international education, it was part of my job to know the college study opportunities available in Europe to English speaking students. I also learned to determine the truly exceptional schools; ones that would be an outstanding experience for any student. Back then my work was with secondary students; high school students living abroad and choosing a college soon. Once my family and I returned to the U.S. my interest in education abroad focused on options for college students and it was evident that opportunities were limited and difficult to reach. As a result, in 1995, I began to build SAI, with the goal of making it possible for all students to experience study abroad; especially at these exceptional schools Iâ€™d come to know. For 18 years now SAI Programsâ€™ hands-on approach has enabled us to serve our students with the finest study abroad programs in Europe. SAI students understand that SAI Programs is an organization known for providing programs and services of distinguishing quality and always with a personal touch. As President, I am committed to maintaining SAI Programs as a small, personalized organization with staff who care for students and respond to their academic interests, cultural curiosities and career goals. As an intentionally small organization we are able to help each individual student feel comfortable in a new cultural environment. And as a small organization, we pay attention to the smallest details, allowing students the greatest access to learning and cultural exposure. SAI Programs is dedicated to introducing students to opportunities that encourage creative interaction among disciplines; communication, science, technology, art and design, economics and social sciences. In this way we seek to help students develop both the breadth and depth of creative thinking, cultural knowledge and professional skills. So when they return from their experiences, they have a deeper understanding of themselves and the world. We believe this will provide an advantage to them in their chosen careers and for the rest of their lives. I invite you to learn more about SAI Programs by visiting our web site saiprograms.com. Michael Cruciano, President SAI Programs

Today’s increasing globalization places new demands on students and decision-makers, and for this reason many undergraduate programs require study abroad. It is critical for today’s student to understand the interconnection of world affairs and to experience, through living abroad, cultural difference and diversity. Educational institutions must prepare today’s student to face a world made smaller by rapid communication, shared commerce and the facility of travel from one place to another.
By discussing issues and making friends from around the world, students begin to see themselves and their homeland from a global perspective. Study abroad students undertake an unforgettable personal journey and SAI is there every step of the way to enhance the experience and encourage our students.

SAI encourages students to participate in these activities as another way to learn about the country and culture.
Advising & Orientation Begin the process as early as possible. SAI stresses the importance of meeting with your academic advisor at your current school to discuss how to “save” or “bank” courses to take while abroad.

From the moment that you express interest in SAI programs, there is someone who is there to help you. SAI Admissions Counselors are knowledgeable about the programs, courses, cities and countries where the host schools are located, and have extensive experience in helping students transition from their colleges and universities in their home countries to the SAI schools abroad.

Among our program choices, certain sites are better equipped to assist students with disabilities than others. As this may be a factor in choosing which SAI program abroad to attend, notify us of any and all disabilities before applying.
APPLICANTS FROM SAI-AFFILIATED SCHOOLS Students from affiliated schools should discuss their plans with the study abroad office at their home school. Some affiliate schools require students to pay all fees directly to SAI while others do not. Be sure to discuss this with your study abroad advisor in order to be clear about the procedure your school uses in their affiliation with SAI. Affiliate students receive credit for courses taken abroad from their home institution. While affiliated schools guarantee credit, this does not guarantee every course will transfer or that it will transfer into your major area of study. Students are responsible for meeting with an advisor to verify transfer credit before beginning their SAI program.
HOUSING Housing assignments are sent by email 5-10 days before the term begins. Students requesting a private room are required to pay the private room supplement fee prior to our processing their single room request. Students electing to make their own housing arrangements will receive a reduction in the program cost. Since this differs from school to school, contact the SAI office for the exact amount of reduction.
If you are uncertain about your college or university’s affiliation with SAI, drop by your study abroad office to discuss it with an advisor or contact the SAI office. You will find a list of current affiliates on our website. Students from affiliated universities MUST obtain approval from their study abroad office prior to submitting an application. APPLICANTS FROM NON-AFFILIATED SCHOOLS SAI welcomes students from any school. All students attending non-affiliated home universities will receive U.S. course credit from the U.S. school of record for their SAI program. For information on the U.S. school of record for your specific program go to the Services link on the program page of our website and click on “U.S. Academic Credit”. SAI automatically processes non-affiliate students through the U.S. school of record; no additional fee is imposed. All questions and correspondence should be directed to the SAI office in California. Upon completion of course work, transcripts will be issued by the U.S. school of record with U.S. credits. These credits are transferable to any school, though it is the student’s responsibility to confirm that specific courses will transfer by speaking in advance with their school advisor or study abroad office. DISABILITIES POLICY SAI is dedicated to providing education abroad opportunities to all students and does not discriminate on the basis of disability or handicap. If you experience any emotional, mental, physical or learning disabilities which may interfere with your ability to successfully pursue an academic course, and which you wish to be taken into account, please notify SAI as soon as possible. As always, advance planning is important in order to ensure the best possible experience abroad. Although we may not be able to require our partner schools abroad to provide accommodations, SAI can offer understanding, respect, and support, and we will do our best to assist students in finding reasonable accommodations similar to their home institutions. Regarding physical disability, it is important to note that Europe’s infrastructure and ability to accommodate disabled individuals differs from what is available in the United States. SAI will do its best to reasonably accommodate all students’ needs.
STUDENT VISAS U.S. citizens studying in London for less than 6 months are not required to obtain a Student Visa. All other students should contact our office so we can assist you with the information you will need to obtain a visa.

Payment Options: 1. Personal check, money order or cashier’s check made payable to “SAI Programs”. Mailed to: SAI Programs, 7160 Keating Avenue Sebastopol, CA 95472. 2. Online Payment by Visa or Mastercard and E-checks: SAI is only able to accept Visa or Mastercard. Credit card payments and E-check payments may be made directly online. Credit card payments include a 2.3% convenience fee. There is no charge for E-check (electronic check from your checking account) payments. 3. Bank Wire Transfer: For wire instructions please contact our California office at (800) 655 - 8965. SAI will mail one billing statement to your permanent mailing address which will include due dates. Failure to meet any payment deadline will result in course registration being placed on “hold” until paid. Transcripts will be withheld if accounts are not paid in full with SAI or the host school. Housing requests may be withdrawn by SAI if payments are not received by their due date. FINANCIAL AID Fall and Spring Semester students using financial aid are required to pay the Application Fee, Confirmation Deposit, Security Deposit and Private Room Supplement (if applicable). Written verification of financial aid award or loan approval MUST be sent to SAI in order to delay the balance of program cost and before your application is considered complete. Students attending Summer Session and receiving financial aid are required to make payments by their regular due dates. SAI will sign Consortium Agreements, allowing the use of financial aid funding, however Summer Session students are not permitted to defer payment until after receiving their financial aid. Summer Session students planning to use financial aid to cover costs must pay all program costs when normally due, and will receive reimbursement when financial aid is paid to them. NOTE: If your financial aid award is not sufficient to cover all Program Costs, the remainder must be paid by regular payment deadline dates. Financial aid monies will be applied last and any balance must be paid by their earlier due date. SAI will delay the final payment amount (based on your financial aid award) until the date your aid disburses.
After acceptance, you will receive by email a Financial Aid Form that must be completed and signed by you AND your school or financial aid provider, and returned to the SAI office. Financial aid students who do not submit ALL required documents by the following dates will be withdrawn:
PAYMENTS Costs may be combined in one payment. All payments, including wire transfers, should list the applicant’s name. A copy of your wire receipt must be faxed to our office before we can process your application. If you are enrolling for more than one term, fees and deposits for ALL terms must be paid at the time of application. A separate Security Deposit must be paid for each term (refundable at the end of that term).
• Fall: July 1 • Spring: November 15 If you intend to use financial aid, check with your school to determine if a Consortium Agreement must be completed between your college and SAI. Students receiving financial aid from their home school may be able to transfer these funds to SAI for payment of their Program Cost. Contact SAI if you have further questions. PROGRAM CANCELLATION & REFUND POLICY PLEASE NOTE: Financial Aid students remain responsible for ALL cancellation penalties that apply, even if program fees have not yet been paid. Failure to pay cancellation obligations will result in referral to a Collection Agency. Check-in day is considered the start of the term. The Confirmation Deposit is NOT REFUNDABLE at any time. Further Program Cost liability is based on the date on which a formal cancellation request is received in writing (email or fax). If a cancellation notice is received 60 days or less before check-in day, students are liable for the following charges: • 60 - 46 days before the start of a term: 25% of the Program Cost • 45 days or less before the start of a term: 100% of the Program Cost. No refund is available. HOUSING-ONLY CANCELLATION & REFUND POLICY If an enrolled student chooses to cancel their SAI housing request and seek private housing on their own the following penalties will apply, based on the date a housing cancellation is received by SAI: • 61 days or more before start of term student is liable for 10% of Housing Cost. • 60 days or less before the start of term the student is liable for 100% of housing cost.
