Program Overview

CCLT The MES Arabic LSA+ is held in Rabat, Morocco. Students live in the old city with local homestay families and take three courses at our local center: two courses in Arabic language (intermediate or advanced) and the director’s seminar, “Modern Morocco: Literature, Culture, and Society.” Students participate in a wide arrange of extra-curricular activities such as calligraphy workshops, NGO visits, and meetings with Moroccan novelists and filmmakers. In addition, students will visit a variety of cities and regions, such as Fez, Tangier, Marrakech, and the Atlas Mountains.

Financial Information

Tuition and Fees
The fees charged by the College for a Dartmouth-sponsored off-campus term of study include regular tuition charges for a term at Dartmouth, service fees, as well as the specific costs established for each off-campus study locale. In many programs, the room and board costs tend to be higher than for a term in Hanover. You can view a budget sheet for this program by clicking here. The cost of transportation to and from the site is the responsibility of the student.

Financial Aid
In order that all qualified Dartmouth undergraduate students may have the opportunity to take part in off-campus programs, the College endeavors to adjust its normal financial aid awards for students already receiving aid. Tuition and expected family contribution for Dartmouth's off-campus programs are the same as for an on-campus term. Assistance is available to meet extra costs associated with off-campus programs, including airfare. Half of any extra cost is met with additional Dartmouth scholarship; loan assistance is offered for the other half. Loan assistance is also offered to replace the employment that would normally be included in an on-campus term. Although financial aid recipients are given aid to cover all of the required costs of the program, students are responsible for purchasing their own plane ticket and, on some programs, meals. Often this means that part of the expected family contribution is used towards these costs rather than for tuition.
