What Do I Need to Know About Money?
Have you budgeted for:
- Health Insurance
- Approximately $875.00 per year. Wilson requires all international
students to have health insurance. When you send your enrollment deposit
you will receive more information.
- Vacation Periods – Students
remaining on campus during J-term and summer vacation periods and
breaks will be charged additional room and board. There are other
options during vacation periods, such as travel or homestay programs (http://www.christmasih.org)
Carrying money to the USA
Be cautious about carrying large sums of cash. You may choose to wire
money from home, or use a major credit card and immediately pay off the
balance to avoid accrual of interest. You may wire money from your home
account to Wilson’s bank account in order to pay your deposit and your
balance for tuition, and room and board. Wilson’s Bank Account information is:
F & M Trust

P.O. Box 6010

* Please remember that there is a fee to wire money. Ask your bank what you can expect to pay for this service.
