Are you considering studying abroad? Do you know how your financial aid and scholarships are used during that process? How do you know what classes are available abroad?
The Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) Study Abroad Office has answered all of these questions on their website found on the mySNHU webpage.
Students can find answers to many questions there as well as through contacting the Study Abroad Office at studyabroad@ snhu.edu. Below are some common questions and answers that many students may have about studying abroad at SNHU with information used from the Study Abroad website.
How much does it cost to study abroad?
Each location will be different. Most students will be paying the same tuition amount as SNHU or lower. Living in foreign countries also tends to be cheaper for students but it all depends on the university’s room and board cost or the cost of living with a homestay family.
According to the Study Abroad Frequently Asked Questions page on their website, “SNHU will pay directly for the cost of foreign tuition to the maximum of on-campus day tuition…however for students accepted to a program whose tuition is higher than SNHU’s are responsible to pay the difference.”
Students who have financial aid and scholarships will be able to apply those amounts to their International university. Payment is made the same as if they were on campus at SNHU.
SNHU students are also in charge of paying for any other expenses while abroad. All flights to and from the foreign destination are paid for by SNHU up to $1,000. Food, souvenirs, and travel while abroad are not covered by SNHU.
What classes can I take while abroad?
Once again, all locations are different and they offer different courses. SNHU’s partnership universities have courses that directly correlate to courses students could take at SNHU. Additional work must be done for classes to be approved that are not previously specified.
Students who are interested can find lists of relating courses on the Study Abroad Program website on the mySNHU webpage.
Do I need a passport and visa?
All students looking to study outside of the United States will require a passport.
“You must have a current passport (which must be valid for at least 6 months past the date of your return) in order to travel outside of the United States,” said the Study Abroad Office on their online website on mySNHU.
Students will get information from the Study Abroad Office regarding obtaining their visa after being accepted into a study abroad program.
The Study Abroad online website offers answers to multiple questions potential study abroad students might have.
