Bridgewater Preferred Programs
The following 10 study abroad programs and all ISEP Exchange experiences are “Bridgewater Preferred Programs”:
Argentina – Córdoba (Spanish immersion)
Chile (Spanish immersion or Spanish/English option with no initial Spanish required)
Costa Rica (Spanish immersion)
Nicaragua (some Spanish required, courses in Spanish & English)
Uruguay (Spanish immersion)
Valladolid (Spanish immersion)
Tuition, room and meals are included in these diverse programs. Participating students are charged the same for their international semester as they would be for an on-campus semester, aside from travel-related costs such as airfare, country visas, travel insurance, etc. The Center for International Education assesses a one-time study abroad fee from all applicants.
Financial assistance from federal and state aid programs may be available for students participating in study abroad. The College establishes an annual limit on the availability of institutional funds to support study abroad programs and the amount of institutional assistance available will vary by program.
Although study abroad is generally a junior-year program, students may not always be able to receive institutional assistance from the College in the semester of the year of their choice. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) determines the eligibility for need-based federal, state and institutional aid programs.
