Beyond offering a wide variety of its own off-campus programs, Calvin also supports students who find other programs that they think better meet their needs. Below are non-Calvin programs in which Calvin students regularly participate.

Students participating in these programs may receive Calvin financial and administrative support. Partner programs allow 100 percent of Calvin financial aid to be used for the program, and non-Calvin programs allow students to take 50 percent of Calvin financial aid if they apply for and are awarded a “slot.” Students may also choose to participate in programs not on this list, but levels of Calvin support may vary.

How to apply

If you are interested in studying on a non-Calvin program, you are encouraged to stop by the Off-Campus Programs Office for additional information. You will need to apply to the non-Calvin program as well as completing the steps necessary for Calvin through Horizons, our online application system. Please note that for Partner Programs and Exchange programs, you should find the name of the program in Horizons (Chicago, Vienna, JCMU, Oman, Lignan, Handong). For other non-Calvin Programs, you should find and apply for "Other Non-Calvin Programs." Please go to the Application Process Page to view the checklist for your program.
