Further information about DIS specific to Wheaton College students
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. The most up-to-date information can be found on the program provider's website above.
Students apply for a Core area of study, some of which have prerequisites. Students should check the DIS website for specific requirements.
Courses & Credits:
Students enroll in five, 3-credit courses per semester, which earn 4.0 Wheaton credits. All courses are taught in English.
Housing & Meals:
Students pay DIS directly for Housing. Options include: Swede=usg host families, shared student residence and Swedish Roommate Stay. Full board is included with host families only. All other housing options include a meal stipend in the form of a pre-paid debit card accepted at numerous grocery stories throughout Stockholm. This stipend is not intended to cover all meal expenses for the entire semester, but rather to supplement. DIS also provides a public transit pass for the semester that covers all zones between DIS and where a student lives.
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 living costs directly to their study abroad program. Please note that this may or may not include a meal plan. 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 their study abroad program for housing expenses.
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 the DIS website for an overview of all additional expenses, which may include visas, international cell phones, and discretionary expenses.
