While your son or daughter navigates the study abroad program selection process, you may have a number of questions of your own. We have compiled here some basic information that we hope you will find useful as you discuss these plans with your student.
Non-Dickinson programs extend Dickinson’s off-campus network to include study options in every part of the world and in every academic area. While not as closely monitored as Dickinson Programs and Partner Programs, these programs are offered by accredited colleges and universities, which oversee them. Students pay a study abroad fee to Dickinson and are not able to transport institutional aid to these programs. Approximately 20 percent of students who study abroad participate in a non-Dickinson program.
