The University of Chicago's Toledo program is ideal for students who want to study Spanish intensively in a completely Spanish-speaking environment. Instruction in the Toledo program is geared towards the intermediate level; students live with local families, receive daily Spanish language instruction by the staff of the Fundacion José Ortega y Gasset, and observe a no-English rule.
Open to students from all majors meeting Northwestern's minimum application requirements.
1 year* (completion of Spanish 101-3 or 115-2) or the equivalent of college-level Spanish.
*Students who have taken higher than SPAN 115-2 are ineligible for this program.
Program only offered in the fall.
4 Northwestern units.
Program participants are housed with host families, allowing students an intimate view of Spanish domestic life. During their stay, students are expected to function as a full member of the household, eating meals with the family and participating in the normal social activities of the home.
Study abroad program costs vary widely and may be more or less expensive than studying at Northwestern. Review the comparison.
This section outlines some of the billing and financial arrangements for the Toledo program through the University of Chicago, and is intended as a guide to help you navigate the financial aspects of your study abroad process. You should always refer to your program materials for the most current information and instructions.
After you are accepted to the Toledo program, you may be required to pay a deposit directly to U. Chicago to confirm your participation on the program. If required, the deposit is your responsibility to pay; Northwestern cannot pay or waive study abroad program deposits for students.
Your Northwestern invoice will be issued through CAESAR on the regular quarterly schedule, and will include your Toledo tuition and program fee, as well as the NU study abroad fee. Refer to your program materials for the most current cost information.
If you receive financial aid and/or loans from Northwestern, these funds will continue to apply directly to your CAESAR account.
If you use the Northwestern 9PAY plan, you may continue to use 9PAY for your NU-billed study abroad expenses, but you should request a study abroad 9PAY estimate to have your plan set up appropriately.
Additional fees may apply for certain courses, housing add-ons, field trips or other optional items related to your program. If applicable, you are responsible for paying any supplemental fees directly.
