Some U.S. colleges and universities ("direct bill institutions") pay IFSA-Butler fees on behalf of their students. Students attending these direct bill institutions pay the IFSA-Butler program fee directly to their home college or university. Students from direct-bill colleges and universities may pay a different fee, but they receive the same outstanding services from IFSA-Butler.
