Non-Exchange Programs

Although Muskingum University has several study abroad opportunities, you may not find the particular opportunity you are looking for. Listed below are links and information for non-exchange programs that other Muskingum students have taken part in. If you have additional questions, please contact Meri Linn McCollum at ext. 8127.

Note: For non-exchange programs, students must pay all fees to the host institution or third-party provider. Students do not pay any fees to Muskingum University during the time they are enrolled in a non-exchange study abroad program. Students are not permitted to use any Muskingum University-granted scholarships (i.e. John Glenn Scholarship, academic scholarships, departmental scholarships); however, federal and state financial aid may be applied in most cases. Please contact the Study Abroad Coordinator or your Financial Aid Counselor for more information.
