Study Abroad

Opportunities to study abroad provide experiences for students to grow academically and personally. Immersing their lives into other cultures while gaining course credit helps to develop critical skills that employers are looking for. At Tennessee Wesleyan, these cross-cultural educational experiences come in several forms.

  • Study Abroad Opportunities: Students live in another country and take classes there for a full term or a year. These offer full immersion in the host university and in the culture of the host country.

These programs, including those we are affiliated with (ISEP, CCSA, CC-CS) and others, offer credit-bearing courses. Students’ grades are transferred back to TWU. Nagasaki Wesleyan’s Japanese Language Program is a shared program: students are evaluated based on their work in Japan, but other pre- and post-course work is dealt with by a TWU instructor. The credit (3-6 hours, JPN 299 Study Abroad in Japanese) is offered by TWU, and a TWU instructor submits the final grade upon completion of the work.

  • Travel Study Programs: Students gain credit in courses offered by TWU faculty on faculty-led trips.

These programs combine travel and coursework in any discipline. The associated coursework may take place on campus before leaving, after returning, and/or during the trip itself. TWU instructors and their chairs monitor the content of and credit for these courses.

  • Excursions: Travel in and of itself is a learning experience. TWU faculty may lead trips and tours without offering a for-credit course.

Financial Aid

  • Some basic information
    1. We recommend meeting with the Associate Vice President of Student Financial Services Lacey Weese to discuss your personal options.
    2. Institutional scholarships cannot be applied to any Study Abroad trip.
    3. Students cannot get any financial aid after they graduate.
      • So if your trip is the summer after you graduate, you would need to exhaust all aid types before commencement.
    4. Student loans are a great option
      • Students can borrow a certain amount per year automatically based on their grade level
        1. Freshman $5,500, sophomores $6,500, juniors and beyond $7,500
        2. Some students may qualify for subsidized loans, which means that interest does not accrue until after graduation
  • On all federal student loans in the student’s names, payments begin after the student leaves school
  • After these loans have been exhausted, parents can apply for a parent PLUS loan. This is a loan in the parent’s name and based on the parent’s credit score.
    1. Parents can defer payments while student is in school.
    2. Interest does accrue while students are in school
  • If a summer course is associated with your study abroad, the HOPE scholarship may be an option.
    1. You must already have the HOPE scholarship in order to use it during the summer semester.
    2. The HOPE will only pay if you are in 6 or more credit hours in one term.
    3. See Belinda Eaton in the Financial Aid Office for summer HOPE questions.
