Wheaton College is committed to providing students with opportunities to broaden their understanding and vision beyond the borders of this campus and this country. We work in collaboration with carefully selected partner institutions around the world to support our students as they prepare to study abroad and while they are overseas. Students must apply to Wheaton's Center for Global Education as well as the institution through which they plan to study abroad.

Courses & Credits:

Housing & Meals:
Students live with families. The Argentine Universities Program includes two meals per day Sunday through Friday and one meal on Saturday.
Students studying abroad will continue to pay Wheaton tuition. Students are not charged Wheaton room and board, or the Wheaton technology, laundry, or student activities fees while on a study abroad program. Wheaton will, in turn, pay the program for all tuition and academic fees and international insurance. Students will pay housing and meals directly to IFSA. Students will book and pay for their own flights.
Fees billed by Wheaton will be charged to students on their regular Wheaton College student account during regular billing cycles (July/December).
Federal, state, Wheaton need-based and merit scholarships will be applied to these charges for Wheaton-approved programs. Students must consult with the Office of Student Financial Services (SFS) for a comprehensive review of their aid. If a student receives aid beyond the cost of Wheaton tuition, they can request a refund through SFS. This can in turn be used to pay IFSA for room and board charges.
Please do your research as housing and meal costs vary greatly from program to program. This Budget Worksheet
can help you estimate the total costs of your program. Refer to your IFSA program website for an overview of all additional expenses, which may include visas, international cell phones, and discretionary expenses.
