Semester/Year Abroad

Maryville College offers semester or year abroad study abroad opportunities with a variety of countries around the world.  Through our bilateral and ISEP partners you have access to over 100 study sites all around the world for a full academic year, a semester, or, in some cases, a summer program.  To learn more about programs in specific countries click on this image  or look for bilateral links below.

 

BILATERAL & ISEP EXCHANGES

Most of our semester/year programs are called EXCHANGE programs. These are either bilateral (with one specific institution) or ISEP exchanges. 

$$ These are our best deal! $$

Wait...what?  Pay your tuition and fees to Maryville College and become a student at the particular institution you choose. In most cases you pay your room and board to Maryville College, and in other cases you pay these costs directly to your host institution.  Either way, your Maryville College & FAFSA financial aid package will cover those costs.

In return, Maryville College gets to receive an international exchange student from an institution abroad.

 

ISEP DIRECT PROGRAMS

ISEP-Direct programs are programs where you would pay a program fee to Maryville College instead of your regular tuition, fees, room and board.  The program fee often covers costs such as tuition, room, and sometimes meals.  The average program fee costs are between $6,000 - $12,000 USD.  Federal aid, and sometimes other state or outside aid may be used to help cover the cost of the program fee, however your MC scholarships (eg. Dean's / Presidential / Bonner, etc) will not be available for these programs. These are generally programs that are too competitive to operate as an exchange, or programs that have special features that aren't offered on exchange.  See features
