International study programs can contribute a great deal to the educational and personal development of students. This study investigates constraints to student participation in an international study program. All students who requested information for a summer international study program at a major university were surveyed to determine the extent to which factors constrained participation. Based on leisure and travel constraint models and past research, factors that most constrained student participation were investigated. Results suggest that students are most constrained by structural factors such as cost and work commitments. Results can assist program directors and faculty to facilitate student participation in international study programs.
