Take your education on a trip; you'll be amazed how far you can go. At Northwestern, we believe studying abroad could be an invaluable part of your preparation for working and living in an increasingly connected world.
If you want to explore countries and cultures beyond campus, we’ll help you arrange a semester-long experience or something shorter—like a four-week summer course. You’ll discover new places, people and passions—at the same time, you might learn more than you can imagine about you and your place in the world.

Costs and financial aid
During their off-campus experience, students may continue to receive their regular financial aid from the college if attending one of the approved programs listed above. These students will be considered enrolled at Northwestern College for the purpose of applying for Title IV assistance. Students pay normal Northwestern costs for the semester. All off-campus costs that exceed on-campus study costs are to be paid by the student.
