TUITION AND FEES
Tuition is payable to Otis. A voucher indicating that tuition has been paid is issued by Otis and must be presented to the Host School at registration. The student may receive a regular financial aid award, if any, to which they are entitled as participants in the Semester Abroad program.

While at the host school, the student is governed by the academic regulations in effect at the host school. Students in the program are ineligible for student aid or employment from the host school.

Laboratory fees, student service fees, or other fees may be charged to the student by the host institution. Such fees are billed to the student and payable directly to the host institution. Policies on these fees vary by institution and program, but they are typically quite minimal.



HOUSING
While at the host Housing is the responsibility of each student. Host schools have no obligation to provide housing and their dorms are often full. A student wishing to live in a Host Schools’ dorm should make this know at the time of application. Fees for Room and Board are billed by and payable directly to the Host School. If dorms are full, off-campus housing information may be obtained from the student services or housing office of the Host School. Students should plan ahead and investigate all housing options at the time of application.


GRADING
Grades received from the Host School during Mobility study will become a part of the student’s official record at Otis. Outgoing exchange students are registered in a block of 15 units to be distributed by the advisor in the application and following the student’s portfolio review upon return to Otis College of Art & Design.

Students are responsible for providing Otis with an official academic transcript from the host school. Exchange units will be recorded as Pass/Fail on the student’s permanent record.
