Off-Campus Study Opportunities

Students can apply to participate in a number of off-campus study opportunities and earn academic credit. Students must complete an application process, pay a $50 non-refundable application fee and receive approval from the Off-Campus Study Committee to participate in off-campus study experiences. Off-campus study programs outside of MVNU will require a separate application and approval process as well. The early application deadline for applying to the Off-Campus Study Committee for approval for off-campus study is December 1 in the year prior to the off-campus study experience. More information is available from the chair or members of the Off-Campus Study Committee or the Academic Affairs Office.

Students should contact the Student Accounts Office for cost information and any related administrative fees. Tuition, room, board, fees and travel costs incurred by the student vary with each program. It is also important to consult with the Financial Aid Office for details regarding available financial aid. Some financial aid is limited for off-campus study so there could be reductions in some students’ financial aid awards. However, there are outside awards available for which students may wish to apply.

The following policies apply to all students desiring to participate in an off-campus study program:

  • Students must show proof of completion of the University’s on-line sexual harassment training prior to participating in off-campus study.
  • Students are not permitted to participate in an off-campus study experience if the student is on academic or social probation during the period of application or during the time of the experience.
