NU Expeditions FAQ

Article Index


What if I have already taken some of these classes or what if I don’t need them but I still want to go?

If the classes offered do not work for you it may be possible to take online or independent study courses to supplement the program offerings. Applicants should speak with the study abroad adviser and their academic adviser to explore their options.

How much does it cost? What about financial aid?

It is the same as being in Northfield on campus for a semester. Financial aid is the same as a regular semester. As in a normal academic term, incidental costs will be up to you. Be aware that the cost of living may be different, so your spending money may or may not go as far as it does in Northfield.

Note: Students attending Norwich through the Association of Vermont Independent College (AVIC) Semester Exchange Program are not eligible to use the AVIC tuition waiver to participate in Norwich Expeditions.

What is covered in the cost of the program?

Tuition, accommodations, fees, and insurance. A meal stipend is provided, but managed by the student.

What is not included?

Books, school supplies, passport and visa fee, personal expenses, non-school related travel expenses.

What if I get sick?

All participants will be provided with international health insurance which will cover most sicknesses and injuries. In the event you are too sick to continue with the program, the insurance plan also covers the cost of your return to the U.S. to secure medical care.

Upon returning how will studying abroad affect opportunities in the Corps?

The Commandant’s office fully supports study abroad and participation does not hinder members from future endeavors. Check with the Commandant’s office for more details.

What about ROTC commitments?

Army and Navy can accommodate applicants being away as long as the applicant secures the necessary permissions. Check with your ROTC command for more details. Air Force applicants should check with their commanders on a case-by-case basis.

Do I need to know French?

Can students travel on their own?

Yes, during any breaks students will be free to travel and explore.
