Affiliate Programs

An affiliate program is a third-party provider or another US university that facilitates enrollment at a host institution or offers their own courses abroad.  Students can study abroad with an affiliate program for a semester, year or summer term. 

Advising Sessions

Students interested in affiliate programs must first attend an advising session.  Group advising sessions specifically for affiliate programs will be held on the following days at the first floor meeting room of the Multicultural Center (same building as the CIE) starting January 13 for the Spring 2014 semester:

  • Mondays, 3:30pm
  • Thursdays, 3:30pm

Courses

When studying on an affiliate program, students must have the courses pre-approved prior to departure by the appropriate faculty member (download the course approval directory) to ensure that the classes taken abroad will be accepted by College of Charleston as transfer credit

Tuition

Students are not charged College of Charleston tuition but instead will pay a fee directly to the host program.  With most providers, this program fee includes tuition and academic fees at the host school, housing, excursions, insurance, and support services.  Programs vary, so check with each individual provider to know what is included. 

Financial Aid

Students can use portable aid only on approved affiliate programs. Students may participate in other approved independent programs or study through another US university but financial aid will not travel.
