Selecting an Off-Campus Study Program
Selecting a Non-Rhodes Program
Rhodes offers its students a list of off-campus programs and program providers from which to chose off-campus programs. The institutions on the List are recognized for providing quality academic instruction and student services. The List is intended to be used as a guide in chosing a program abroad and is available to students on the InRhodes page, "Select Your Program."
Students are not restricted to the programs or institutions on the List; however, those wishing to participate on a program that does not appear on the List of Recognized Programs/Providers must petition for approval to participate on the program. Staff at the Buckman Center are able to explain the petition process.
Non-Rhodes programs′ policies may be different from Rhodes′ policies.
Be sure to become acquianted with all aspects of applying to these programs: deadlines; eligibility requirements; application materials; scholarship applications; and program fees, billing, and refund policies.
There are significant differences between Rhodes and Non-Rhodes programs.
Grades: Grades earned on non-Rhodes programs are treated as transfer credit and must be passed with a C- or higher.
Potability of Financial Aid: Students enrolled in semester or year-long non-Rhodes programs may obtain non-campus-based Title IV funds for which the student may qualify. However, no Rhodes funds or campus-based Title IV assistance will be available. In order to continue any existing federal financial aid (e.g. Stafford Loan, Pell Grants, Parent Loans, etc.) when participating in a non-Rhodes program, students must complete the Consortium Agreement for Financial Aid form. Students may apply for Study Abroad Scholarships, whether they are on Rhodes or non-Rhodes programs.
