The list of Olivet-Recognized Programs presently consists of Au Sable, EduVenture, International Business Institute and Romanian Studies. New programs will be considered if they agree with the philosophy and mission of Olivet Nazarene University, and they are approved by the offices of Student Accounts, Financial Aid and the Registrar.How much does it cost?For all Olivet-sponsored or recognized programs Olivet’s Office of Student Accounts will pay for the cost of the student’s program once invoiced (students are responsible to pay for the program deposit). We will then reverse the Olivet general fee and full-time tuition charges for that semester, and charge the student’s account for the specified cost of the selected program. We will charge the student a $250 “Undergraduate Off-Campus Study Fee.”When can I go?To participate in any off-campus study abroad program, a student must be at least a second-semester sophomore in good academic standing at Olivet. The student must have the approval of the dean of the University, University registrar, dean of academic support, dean of students and his/her academic advisor. A student may take up to 18 semester hours through cross-registration at the undergraduate level and six hours at the graduate level. All other program-specific requirements must be met prior to application. How do I apply?
How does study abroad or off campus study help me in my major?All coursework completed in sponsored programs, and most coursework in recognized programs, is accepted for equivalent credit at Olivet. All students are required to set a meeting with the registrar’s office to evaluate how the coursework will meet the academic needs of the student.
