OIP and Study Abroad Sponsors "Get a Passport Day"
December 18, 2015
An important step to embarking on an international endeavor is applying for a passport. For the past four years, the Study Abroad Office has partnered with the US Passport Agency to provide the Drexel community with the convenience of submitting a passport application right here on campus! This year, Get a US Passport Day was one of several campus activities offered during International Education week, which is a US State Department initiative to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide.
On Get a Passport Day, Drexel students, faculty, and staff were invited to apply for a new or renewal passport by meeting with US Passport Agency representatives on campus. To encourage and support students in applying for their passport, the Office of International Programs offered a $100 refund of passport costs to the first 10 students to sign up, and $50 refunds for the next 10 students. A total of 30 students, faculty, and staff took advantage of Get a Passport Day and are now one step closer to preparing for travel abroad.
