Application deadline – March 31st, 2017 Exchange Programs Exchange Programs allow students to study abroad for a semester or an academic year by “trading” places with a student from an overseas partner university. Students continue to pay their regular tuition and fees at Marshal. Depending on the program, housing and meals may be paid to Marshall. Students with federal aid, student loans, and Marshall Scholarships may use these funds toward the cost of a Marshall Exchange Program. WV Promise Scholars may also use their scholarship toward any Marshall Exchange Program. Faculty-Led Programs Faculty-Led Programs are short-term study abroad opportunities developed by Marshall faculty in collaboration with the Office of Study Abroad. Participants will travel with a group of fellow Marshall students in classes that are usually taught by Marshall instructors and will receive Marshall credit while studying abroad. Costs for these programs vary. Financial aid may be used towards the cost of the program. Affiliate Programs Affiliate Programs are available for a semester, year, or summer through study abroad program providers. Marshall has agreements with several of these study abroad program providers to allow students more study abroad opportunities. Students who partake in an affiliate program apply and are accepted by the study abroad program provider. Students also pay directly to the study abroad program provider. Federal financial aid and student loans will apply to the cost of these programs.
