Tuition Waiver and Tuition Exchange Students
Students who receive the tuition waiver benefit or tuition exchange grant must participate in an exchange program in order to utilize the waiver of tuition. Students must also attend St. Norbert College for a minimum of two consecutive semesters prior to studying abroad. For a complete list of the College's exchange programs, please visit the About page, and then select "Exchange Programs."
If you are a tuition waiver or tuition exchange student who wishes to participate in a non-exchange program, you must pay the actual cost of the particular study abroad program. Please contact the appropriate study abroad advisor for more information.
Washington Semester Students
Students are able to apply their financial aid package to one semester of off-campus study. Students who participate in the Washington Semester at American University must select an exchange program in order to apply their financial aid package to the second semester of off-campus study. For a complete list of the College's exchange programs, please visit the About page, and then select "Exchange Programs."
If you are a Washington Semester student who wishes to participate in a non-exchange program, you will not be able to apply your St. Norbert College institutional scholarships to your second semester of off-campus study. You may, however, apply your outside scholarships, grants, and loans.
Studying Abroad for Two Semesters
Depending on your academic and personal circumstances, it may be possible to study abroad for two semesters. The Study Abroad Office encourages you to consider spending two semesters abroad - either on the same program or on two different programs. Students may study abroad for two consecutive semesters or return to St. Norbert between the two semesters abroad. Students who would like to study abroad for two semesters must select an exchange program for at least one of the semesters abroad. The other semester may be spent on an exchange program or on a non-exchange program. For a complete list of the College's exchange programs, please visit the About page, and then select "Exchange Programs."
If you would like to participate on two non-exchange programs, you will not be able to apply your St. Norbert College institutional scholarships to your second semester of off-campus study. You may apply your outside scholarships, grants, and loans.
Students may not spend more than two semesters off-campus. Please contact the Registrar for more information about this policy.
Students from Other Institutions (Non-SNC Students)
Students who are enrolled at WAICU (Wisconsin Association of Independent Colleges and Universities) institutions may participate in St. Norbert College study abroad programs (pending availability). You will be billed by and make payment to your home institution, not St. Norbert College or your study abroad program. Please consult your study abroad advisor at your home institution for program cost information.
Program Cancellation and Withdrawal
Students wishing to withdraw their application after the application deadline (October 01 for the spring semester programs and March 01 for the fall semester programs) must notify the Study Abroad Office by completing the Program Withdrawal and Cancellation Form. The date on which the Study Abroad Office receives your form will be the official date of withdrawal. The amount of your refund depends on the date of your withdrawal. Please note that the $400 study abroad administrative fee is non-refundable. Depending upon the program and the date of withdrawal, other fees may also be non-refundable, including tuition, room, and board.
Students withdrawing from participation in an outside program (see below) must also notify their program provider in accordance with the provider's policy.
Student Suspension or Dismissal
No refund of program fees and no academic credit will be given to students who are suspended or dismissed from their study abroad program for conduct or academic violation reasons. Please reference the Conditions of Participation document on the Resources & Links page for further information.
Participation in an Unapproved Program
SNC Study Abroad offers a complete list of approved study abroad programs. Students who wish to participate in a program that is not approved by St. Norbert College must withdraw from the College and assume all program-related costs. Students should be mindful of the implications that withdrawing from the College has on their financial aid package.
