Maryville College is a member of ISEP, a non-profit, educational community dedicated to helping students overcome the financial and academic barriers to study abroad. Made up of 328 colleges and universities, members work together to connect students to affordable, high quality academic programs in over 54 countries. Students on ISEP programs are encouraged to discover new cultural surroundings and challenge the unknown. By directly enrolling into classes at member universities, students build real connections and gain a true understanding of what it is like to live in another culture. With ISEP, students can study alongside locals, in any subject, on a budget they can afford.
How do Maryville College Bilateral and ISEP Exchanges Work?
Maryville College EXCHANGE programs are full-immersion programs--you pay your tuition and fees to Maryville College and become a student at the particular institution you choose. In most cases you pay your room and board to Maryville College, and in other cases you pay these costs directly to your host institution. Either way, your Maryville College & FAFSA financial aid package will cover those costs.
In return, Maryville College gets to receive an international exchange student from an institution abroad.
How do ISEP Direct Programs Work?
ISEP-Direct programs are programs where you would pay a program fee to Maryville College instead of your regular tuition, fees, room and board. The program fee often covers costs such as tuition, room, and sometimes meals. The average program fee costs are between $6,000 - $12,000 USD. Federal aid, and sometimes other state or outside aid may be used to help cover the cost of the program fee, however your MC scholarships (eg. Dean's / Presidential / Bonner, etc) will not be available for these programs.
