Elon in New York City Fall Semester
Study USA is proud to announce the newest addition to our program selection, Elon in NYC for fall semester. This program provides students with the opportunity to study in the Big Apple. The NYC program runs from late August to early December, approximately the same time as Elon's main campus.
Applications for Fall 2015 open January 1, 2015
Classes & Components
This program allows for students of any major to take 12 hours of credit through our partnership with Marymount Manhattan College (MMM). The school offers a variety of course selections and offers an advisor to help students get the most from the course offerings. Additional information about MMM is available at http://www.mmm.edu/academics.
Additional credits are available through an internship (2 credit hours) and a professional development course (1 credit hour). Study USA offers all students assistance in obtaining internships that will provide a unique and engaging experience. The professional development course offered gives students a chance to jump start their professional careers. The course will include assessments of strengths & interests to create a unique career plan and will allow students to network, interview and identify industry professionals.
Housing & Programming
The housing for the NYC program is at the 92Y Residence. This is a distinctive housing option because the dormitory is known for its world class programming. In addition to a double room with community bathrooms, kitchen and common space, students gain free or reduced pricing to multiple cultural events. Examples include concerts, readings, performances and classes taught by industry professionals. Also located in the facility is an art gallery, cafe and fitness center. More information about 92Y is available at www.92Y.org. Housing-specific information is available here.
Additional programming outside of 92Y will also be coordinated by Elon staff and alumni and available to students. Tours of the New York Public Library, group trips to the theater district and networking events are just some of the events included on the itinerary. Opportunities for service learning will also be offered.
The cost of the NYC program includes basic Elon tuition, plus additional housing and programming fees. The billable total for the semester is $22,100. There are costs of living that are not billed/paid for by Elon, such as food and transportation (subway, taxi etc.) These are approximated to cost an additional $4,000.
For the fall of 2015, Elon students will move into the 92Y facility on Saturday, August 22, 2015 and after a week of orientation, students begin classes at MMM on Tuesday, September 1, 2015. The semester at MMM concludes on Tuesday, December 8, 2015 and students are required to vacate 92Y by Saturday, December 19, 2015.
