Application Process for non-Bethel Approved Programs - 2 steps
In order to participate, you must apply and be approved by both Bethel and the program itself.
1. Bethel approval - Click "Apply Now" on this page to complete the Bethel approval process, which requires a minimum grade point average of 2.5 (individual programs may have a higher minimum requirement) and approval from the Student Life office in regard to disciplinary records
2. Program application - You will apply directly through the program provider's website. This typically requires an application fee, essay/personal statement, approval from our study abroad office and an official Bethel transcript, plus other various application pieces
 
Billing policy for third party programs
Bethel students are billed a combination of Bethel's tuition rate PLUS the room/board rate of the chosen program.  We will contact the program to determine what portion of their comprehensive fee is their room/board rate.  If your program's tuition rate is higher than Bethel's tuition rate, you will be charged the program's tuition rate and room/board costs plus an additional $750 administrative fee.  

Billing is based on Bethel's tuition rate instead of the program's tuition rate so that you can remain enrolled at Bethel and utilize your Bethel gift aid and state/federal aid during the semester you are gone.  Bethel institutional gift aid can be used toward one semester of off-campus study. 

Financial Aid/Scholarships
Financial Aid awards (institutional grants, loans and scholarships) will typically travel with you for one semester.  Students receiving the Minnesota State Grant will want to make sure they are enrolled in the equivalent of 15 credits while they are gone to receive the full grant.

Please check your program's website for additional scholarship opportunities.

Program Administration
This program is run through an approved third party provider which has its own office and staff to organize cultural activities, academics, and housing and provide onsite student support.
