    Notice: Many student travel discounts are only available if you have an International Student Identification Card (ISIC). This card verifies that you are a university student, and are thus eligible for any reduced student rates. To apply for an ISIC online, visit http://www.isic.org The cost is $22, and you do not need to be enrolled in a study abroad program to be eligible. You simply need a Student ID (Dragon ID for MSUM students) number.
