Program Cost

The cost of the program is $2600, which includes three (semester) hours of OSU graduate tuition; room and partial board (breakfast and dinner daily) with a Uruguayan family in Montevideo; short excursions in and around Montevideo; all-day excursions to Colonia del Sacramento and Punta del Este; a weekend excursion to Buenos Aires (lunch and dinner not included); some course materials; supplemental travel health insurance; and airport pickup and drop-off at the international airport in Montevideo. The costs of round-trip air fare, standard medical insurance, and personal expenditures will be additional.

Non-residents of Ohio are not required to pay any additional costs to cover out-of-state tuition for this program.

Financial Aid

The Summer Seminars in Spanish are special OSU “contract courses” taught with the support of the Office of Distance Education and eLearning (ODEE). Since participants enroll for three credits through the Columbus campus and receive regular graduate credit on an OSU transcript, certain loans and scholarships might be applicable to the cost of this program as well.

Teachers from Franklin County (Ohio) public schools will be offered a $400 credit towards program fees, bringing their program price down to $2200. If you are eligible for this discount, please contact Rachel Sanabria.

Medical Insurance

All students participating on OSU study abroad programs will receive supplementary medical insurance through GeoBlue or a comparable carrier at no extra charge. Students are required to maintain their regular insurance coverage while participating in the program as well. The provider and terms of the health insurance for study abroad are subject to change.

Excursions and Special Events

In order to offer a wider perspective of Uruguayan life, the program sponsors excursions to sites of historical and cultural interest, lectures by visiting scholars, and other events. Such activities take place regularly and are included in the price of the program.
