Manhattanville College has several direct exchange agreements with universities in England, France, Ireland, and Japan. Students pay what they normally pay for tuition every semester at Manhattanville College (all institutional and federal money is available). Students are billed directly by their study abroad program/university and are responsible to pay the cost of the room and board of the host academic institution.
Opportunity is limited to only two students per year per exchange program! Highly competitive.
2. Cooperative Programs
Manhattanville encourages students, as part of its commitment to global and intercultural learning, to explore studying overseas. Regrettably, the school has limited spaces each year in its own cooperative programs and must employ highly competitive standards during the selection process. Priority is given to students who have never had a sustained global experience abroad. Lower priority is given to students who have already experienced living and studying abroad or outside the U.S. Interested sophomore students should visit the Study Abroad Office soon and consult with the director of the program in order to apply for travel during the junior year of study.
Sites include but are not limited to: Galway, Rome, Florence, London, Oxford, Seville, Madrid, Paris, Berlin, Brussels, Prague, Moscow, Santiago, Jerusalem, Buenos Aires, and Johannesburg.
Students must have:
A minimum 3.0 GPA or higher
Classified as a Junior or first semester Senior at the time of overseas study. Seniors in their final semester are NOT eligible
A convincing rationale as evidenced by a broad spectrum of considerations
Course concentration (Major)
Extra curricular activities
Completed at least ONE year of foreign language study as applicable to the individual overseas program
A completed Study Abroad application submitted by due date
Be free of financial holds
Cooperative Study Abroad Cost Information
All students must pay Manhattanville tuition for the semester abroad.
Students may receive a portion of their Manhattanville Aid during this semester. Consultations with Financial Services will confirm each student's eligibility. All remaining balances on total cost of Manhattanville tuition must be paid to Manhattanville.
Federal and/or state aid and loans can be applied to the cost of the remaining balance of Manhattanville tuition. If outside funding exceeds the cost of Manhattanville tuition, students have access to the remainder of that money to use toward the housing (room and board) cost of the study abroad program.
Once students pay Manhattanville tuition, Manhattanville will pay the tuition cost of the student's study abroad tuition.
Students need to be aware of their financial commitment for room and board while abroad. All students are financially responsible to pay for the room and board costs of their study abroad program. Thus, there is no housing cost to Manhattanville for that semester abroad.
3. Independent Programs
A student may study abroad independently for the following reasons:
If Manhattanville College's direct and cooperative placements are full
It is financially beneficial for the student.
Or the student wishes to go to a location where direct exchange and cooperative programs are not available.
Independent means that students are responsible for all costs of their study abroad program (tuition and housing fees). Student will be billed directly by the study abroad program. Manhattanville will not pay any program costs, thus there is no bill for any Manhattanville costs.
Students do have access to their federal aid and also to personal loans in the independent status.
As with all students studying abroad, they must have the projected course schedule pre-approved by their advisor and/or department chairs for graduation purposes.
