Some financial aid may be available in the form of loans. Students should meet with a Student Financial Services (SFS) representative in Clifford Coles Hall (formerly Rindge Hall) as soon as possible to discuss individual financial aid package and possibilities.
Students need to be financially clear (i.e. worked out a plan with SFS, signed appropriate forms, etc.) by April 1. The program fee will not be refundable after April 1, so working with the SFS office is most important. If any program is canceled for any reason, all monies will be reimbursed.
New England course students will stay in a Lodge in the White Mountains, and Rome, London and Dublin students will stay in study abroad type residencies or youth hostels in Europe.
