Preview classes begin in the Spring term, and field study travel is planned for March 2022. Any questions regarding Preview can be directed to Global Engagement.
Full-time, matriculated first-year students and full-time transfer students who enter the University in spring, summer or fall participate in Preview during the following spring semester. You must maintain good academic and disciplinary standing prior to departure.
If eligible, you will be notified by email in early fall about online registration. You will need to indicate your top three preferences. You will be asked to write a brief personal statement which explains your interest in a particular course and your statements will be reviewed and considered as part of your placement. You will receive specific details about deadlines and payment by email.
Students completing Preview courses will earn two credits. Individual faculty lead the curriculum. Preview is open to first-year and transfer students in all majors.
Preview program fees are $795. The fee covers air and ground transportation, programmed events, accommodations, and some meals.
You are responsible for passport/visa fees, meals, and incidental expenses including the cost of a passport (and visa, where applicable), lunch, dinner, souvenirs, and individual activities. Costs will vary among sites, but $50 per day is a modest budget. Past students report spending $250 to $500, depending on their habits and preferences.
