Key Terms

Why Study Abroad?

Policy

Procedure


 

Key Terms

Partner:
One of the institutions with which we have a memorandum of understanding (MOU).  We have 25 partners.   Non-native English speaking international students that we deal with come from our partner institutions.  
 
Memorandum of Understanding:
The MOU is a general agreement between institutions and signed by both presidents.  It’s usually in effect for five years and can be renewed by mutual consent.
 
Student Exchange Agreement:
The SEA is a specific agreement that details how students will be billed, where they should live, etc.
 
2+2:
A specific educational agreement that must be approved by the Curriculum Committee (perhaps also by the Faculty Senate) and Middle States, in which the student studies the first two years at her/his home institution (one of our partners) and then studies her/his final two years at Medaille College.  The student receives bachelor’s degrees from both institutions.
 
3+1:
Similar to a 2+2 in all aspects except the student only receives a degree from the home institution. 
 
Financial Aid:
Medaille College Financial Aid office processes regular financial aid packages for students who study abroad with partner schools only.  
 

Why Study Abroad?

Life in the 21st century is by nature, global. We interact with people from other countries on a regular basis. Study Abroad exposes students to new people, cultures, and socio-economic systems. It takes the higher education experience to another level, and to this end, Medaille College offers opportunities for study at partner institutions in several countries.

* Depending upon where you’re looking, you may choose to Study Abroad in fall, spring or summer sessions.

* Study abroad for one or two semesters.  If you’re studying at a partner institution, this will depend upon our exchange agreement with that particular institution.  Study abroad at non-partner institutions is for one semester only.

* Each partner institution has a person responsible for incoming students. The Medaille College student would check in with that person for orientation, just like we do here. Also, it is advisable that the Medaille College student registers with the US Embassy (this can be done online before arrival in that country). The embassy will send out alerts and information to the student.
