If the Wells College or approved programs do not fit your academic or cultural objectives, you may apply to study on a non-approved program. Students applying to a non-approved program must meet the same eligibility requirements and general regulations for approval as students on a Wells College or an approved program. Your institutional aid will not be available and you must withdraw from the College for the semester. Students participating in non-approved programs must pay the College an administrative fee of $150. Please note that credits earned on a non-approved program will be treated as transfer credit. This means the credits only, not the grades, will transfer and that only courses in which grades of C- or better are earned will transfer. Students may not be approved for a non-approved program if Wells offers a Wells College or an approved program with similar learning objectives. Students exploring non-approved programs should speak with the Director of International Programs before applying to any program.
