Since the programs are classified as full-time, semester long, you can use any scholarships, grants and financial aid you would receive during a normal semester to pay for the program. Costs for study abroad programs vary by location and length of program. Consult with WSC’s International Program Director to explore the costs associated with a specific program.
Each program at Wayne State is designed with credit worthy quality in mind so that the credit earned can be a part of your 120 hour undergraduate degree. This is also important with respect to affordability, no wasted credits. Through advisement, you can use the credits to meet various general education requirements or to satisfy a portion of the requirements in an International Studies minor or International Business concentration. In some cases the credit can be used in a major. You will know how the credit will be used before you begin the program.
All Wayne State study abroad programs are led by Wayne State faculty and the participants, during the program, function as Wayne State students. You travel, study and live together during the program with other students you know, all under the direction of the accompanying WSC professor(s). The professors are chosen based on their specific talents and experiences in study abroad.
