2024 Program Fees

We will work with you so that the cost of the program is as close to the cost of an equivalent semester at your home institution as possible. The total cost for the Sea Change Semester program is based on the comprehensive fees for Colby College.

Program fees include:
  • Tuition
  • 16 semester hours of credit (fully accredited by Colby College)
  • Housing at the Graham Shimmield Residence Hall
  • One time grocery stipend (direct deposited into account)

Program fees do not include:
  • $250 security deposit for residence hall due upon arrival
  • Travel expenses to and from East Boothbay, Maine
  • Personal expenses (we estimate that students might spend $50-300)

Financial Aid

Financial aid is available to ensure that the semester does not cost more than the equivalent semester at your home college. Financial aid is limited and decided on a rolling basis. Students who apply by February 15 will have full consideration for financial aid.
