A shorter version of the renowned MUDEC experience, the Luxembourg Intensive Summer Program is an ideal choice for students who may not have the opportunity to study for a semester in Luxembourg. The nine-credit-hour summer program is designed for the serious student wishing to complete an entire European-focused Thematic Sequence or Global Perspectives and/or other potential Foundation requirements in only seven weeks during the Summer Session.

Each summer, three Ohio-based Miami professors teach courses in Luxembourg that satisfy requirements of the Global Miami Plan curriculum.

  • The three courses may fulfill a Thematic Sequence, plus 3 hours towards the Global Perspectives requirement, or the courses may count as the completion of the Global Perspectives requirement, plus 3 hours toward another Global Miami Plan Foundation requirement.  It is not possible to fulfill both the 9 credit hour Thematic Sequence requirement AND the 6 credit hour Global Perspectives requirement on the Luxembourg summer program.
  • There are no prerequisites for these courses, and students must take all three courses.
  • Classes meet Monday through Thursday and two 6-day (5-night) faculty-led study tours are embedded in the 7-week program.
  • All students live in a homestay and, therefore, have an inside view of the local culture. They have the opportunity to interact with other locals and learn about everyday life in Luxembourg.

What's it Going to Cost?
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Miami University faculty-led study abroad and away workshops have three cost components: tuition/admin fee, program fee and out-of-pocket expenses. The full cost of participation is the total of the costs below.
 
Tuition and Admin fee + Program fee + Out of pocket expenses = Total cost

 

**Workshops are exempt from the Tuition Promise** Amount Due by:
UNDERGRADUATE TUITION WINTER/SUMMER 2017-18    
Ohio Resident per credit hour $546.01 Charged to Bursar bill
Non-Resident per credit hour* $919.68 Charged to Bursar bill
GRADUATE TUITION WINTER/SUMMER 2017-18    
Ohio Resident per credit hour $525.70 Charged to Bursar bill
Non-Resident per credit hour* $880.87 Charged to Bursar bill

* This rate reflects a discounted tuition rate approved for non-Ohio residents participating in this study abroad/away program. This discount is considered a waiver.  Per University policy, only one tuition waiver can be applied to an individual student per term, but the highest waiver rate will be automatically applied. 

An explanation of how tuition charges will appear on your bursar bill is available at http://blogs.miamioh.edu/globalperspectives/sample-page/workshop-fees/?

Summer Term Tuition Refund Policy
You must officially withdraw from a credit workshop registration by  4:30 p.m. on the business day before the start of the workshop to receive a tuition refund. Workshop administrative fees and program fees are non-refundable unless the workshop is cancelled by Miami University. Failure to attend, non-payment, or contacting the workshop director is insufficient notice. To officially withdraw from a workshop, you must contact Global Initiatives, 214 MacMillan Hall, global@MiamiOH.edu, (513)529-8600.

ADMINISTRATIVE FEE $175.00 Charged to Bursar bill
Administrative Fee Refund Policy
The $175 administrative fee is charged upon course registration and is non-refundable.
 
2019 TOTAL PROGRAM FEE $3300 After 02/28, withdrawal fees may be up to and including the full program fee, regardless of how much has been paid at the time of withdrawal
DEPOSIT $500 due no later than 02/15/2019 or upon acceptance if after that date (refundable until 2/28/2019, non-refundable thereafter)
BALANCE $2800 due 04/01/2019 (non-refundable after 02/28/2019)
Program fee includes housing, some meals, study tour, transportation, and activities fees

Program Fee Refund Policy
Withdrawals prior to 02/28/2019 do not incur any fees.  If a student withdraws past 2/28/2019, the withdrawal fee is calculated based upon the specific fees committed on the student's behalf at the time of withdrawal.  As a result, no specific withdrawal fee can be given before withdrawal, but withdrawal fees can include up to the entire program fee depending upon timing.  It is important to note that due to the program need to make advanced arrangements regardless of the payment schedule, students withdrawing after 2/28/2019 may be responsible for withdrawal fees whether a specific payment has been made or not.  This is because the program incurs expenses regardless of the payment schedule.  A late-withdrawing student will only be charged fees necessary to reconcile the non-recoverable expenses of the withdrawal, and nothing more.  We must, when necessary, charge withdrawal fees to ensure that other students' costs are not increased to balance the program budget in the event of a late withdrawal, as Miami does not generate revenue from its workshop program fees.  Students are only charged what is needed to fund the program in the first place, so there is no budget surplus to cover withdrawals.

Additional Anticipated Expenses $4000 Out-of-pocket
Additional Anticipated Expenses include international airfare, GeoBlue insurance, additional meals, personal travel

All fees are subject to change without notice

All summer session courses and credit workshops are enrollment contingent, and are subject to cancellation due to low enrollment.
