How much will the Gettysburg Semester cost?
Students participating in The Gettysburg Semester will pay one-half of Gettysburg College's yearly fee for tuition, room, and board. The current cost of tuition, room, and board for Gettysburg College students is available on the Financial Aid pages of the college site.
Students interested in obtaining financial aid for the Gettysburg Semester should contact the Office of Financial Aid at their home institution. Although state and federal funding will usually transfer to Gettysburg College, some scholarships, grants and loans funded with institutional resources may not be available. Federal aid must be awarded through the institution where the student is matriculated. A consortium agreement is needed before federal aid can be processed and the funds forwarded to Gettysburg College. If the Office of Financial Aid at your home institution indicates that they will not process federal aid, contact the Gettysburg College Office of Financial Aid at 717 337-6611 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Discussion of the issues can be very helpful as you explore various options for funding the Gettysburg Semester.
Gettysburg Semester students live in The Appleford, a former bed-and-breakfast (c. 1867), which also serves as home for members of Gettysburg College's Civil War Era Studies minor.
The 2008 Gettysburg Semester students were juniors and seniors from Siena College, East Stroudsburg University, Ashland University, Western Connecticut State, Rhode Island College, Furman University, Messiah College, Southeastern Louisiana and Syracuse. In other words, people just like you!
