  • All other features listed in Option I above

2014 Program Dates :  September 29 to December 12

*Prices for both options subject to change, based on rate of currency exchange.
Not included in either option: airfare or ground transportation, health insurance, cost of EvCC credit(s), personal expenses and passport fees.

Participants in both programs must enroll in Spanish 299 for 1 credit, but may enroll for up to 5 credits in Spanish 299. Students wishing to earn EvCC credits for the following courses by way of course challenge may earn up to 5 credits: Spanish 121,122, 123, 221, 222 and 223. Regular tuition policies apply for all EvCC credits and are not included in the quoted program costs, so additional fees will be incurred.

Students who already meet EvCC’s requirements for financial aid and who are interested in participating in the study abroad program should speak with an EvCC Financial Aid advisor for further information on available funding. In general, Spanish 299 and course challenge credits cannot be earned until the quarter following participation in the study abroad program.
