The first students affected by its study abroad requirement are juniors this year and, of about 300, 95 percent have already studied abroad or are signed up for programs this summer or in the January term, said Daniel Norton, associate dean of the Office of International Studies. That leaves about 15 with whom the college is still working, Norton said, some of whom may be postponing their graduation until December 2010 for other reasons.
Two or three students petitioned for and were granted exemptions based on something documented, like a medical condition. Those granted exemptions still need to complete an off-campus experience through the career development office, Norton said.
In terms of practical considerations, Goucher provides a $1,200 voucher to help students pay for study abroad. Another obstacle the college has run into, aside from financial ones, is how to help students with low grade point averages access study abroad, as many programs have minimum GPA requirements.
"We've learned a lot as we've implemented this and worked through those exceptional cases of students either with medical issues or financial issues," Norton said. "Certainly a student's financial situation shouldn't be a deterrent to them studying abroad, but how we navigate that has really been an ongoing development, as with students with lower GPAs, how we can work to ensure they have a good study abroad experience. It's developing enough programs for the students, with enough variety [in terms] of locations and program length."
At the same time, Norton said, "There have been some interesting changes where I think we're recruiting more students who are coming to Goucher because of our study abroad requirement.

"We're not experiencing any significant changes," said Daniel Norton, director of international programs at Muskingum College.
If anything, Norton said the amount of time it takes to complete applications for an international student has increased with the new restrictions put in place after Sept. 11.For instance, students must have a face-to-face interview with the U.S. Consulate office in their country, and it takes time to get that scheduled.
The students must have all their documentation ready, including a letter of acceptance from the host school.Norton said the college encourages students to schedule their interviews even if they haven't received the letter.If students wait too long, they might not get an interview done in time.
The college has pushed its application process back a little as a result.Norton said the college used to accept applications until the end of June or early July.But now applications have to be competed by June 1 to give extra time for the visa process.
"I think the perception that there will be more difficulty is more of an issue than the actual reality," Norton said.
Marietta College, a four-year liberal arts college, has seen a drop in international students.
A major reason for the decline in international student applications, Norton said, is the aggressive recruiting being done by the United Kingdom and Australia.According to Norton, two of the countries being targeted are China and India -- countries from where a majority of international students come.
"They have seen a dramatic increase in the past year," he said.
Most of Marietta's international students come from China.The college has people in the country and even has a program there, making it an easier process.Both Rees-Miller and Norton said the ability to pay is a big factor for international students seeking a visa.
"We're recruiting students from some well-known families who have no trouble coming up with the funds," she said.

Dr. Daniel P. Norton, director of the Office of International Programs (OIP), said the consortium did a lot of extensive work with the Middle East. Norton said OIP has not really worked with the consortium but would look forward if the two programs were able to find a common goal and work toward it.
"It is a good opportunity to expand our international incentives," Norton said.
