Airfare is not included in the price of the program. Each participant will be responsible for their own reservation, and payment will be made directly to an airline or travel agency (not to OSU or IEA/Academia Uruguay).

More information about SSAST travel to Uruguay is provided by our hosts once a student has been accepted. Applicants are asked not to purchase their airline tickets until they are aware of these specific arrival and departure parameters.


As of December 2018, a visa is not needed for stays in Uruguay of less than 90 days. More information is available here.


The program includes accommodations in Montevideo (or Buenos Aires) from Tuesday, July 9 through Thursday, July 25. Unless they combine program travel with another destination, participants will almost surely leave the U.S. on Monday, July 8 and arrive back in the U.S. on Friday, July 26.

The program administrators reserve the right to alter these dates, destinations, and program details.
