What's Included

See below for full list and description of each item.

  • University Tuition & Classes

Students will receive instruction from Blinn College faculty. Blinn College tuition is not included in the SOL program price and must be coordinated directly through Blinn College.

  • Transcript

Blinn College issues the transcript.

  • Onsite Directors & Staff

Sol Education Abroad recognizes the importance of knowledgeable, friendly, and welltrained onsite staff. Our onsite directors and staff are available 24 hours a day and 7 days a week to assist you with any needs. Our goal is to ensure you are as comfortable as possible while abroad.

  • Excursions

Excursions are a fundamental part of the abroad experience. Sol Education Abroad carefully selects weekend excursions that allow you to discover more about the country in which you are studying. Excursions are selected based on cultural and educational importance or sites of natural beauty. Entrance and transportation fees are always included.

  • Cultural Activities

A major aspect behind our site selection process is what the location has to offer the student. Cultural activities are an integral part of the Sol Education Abroad experience, and allow you further exposure to the language and culture of the site.

  • Housing

Our programs include housing with one of our local host families. One of the most rewarding aspects of our program is living with a local host family. Depending on your preference, you can either choose to live with a roommate or live alone with the host family. Living and sharing your experience with your host family will strengthen your experience and your understanding of both culture and language. We carefully select only those families experienced in hosting students.

  • Meals

All meals are provided by your host family (three meals per day). This is a great way to spend time with your family and experience the local cuisine. While traveling on weekends, you can request that your family pack you a snack or lunch. Please make sure to let us know about any special dietary needs you may have.

  • Program Orientation

When you arrive at your study abroad destination, our on-site staff will provide you with a welcome orientation. This will cover important topics such as health, safety, academics, host families, cultural awareness, and end with a city tour.

  • Pre-Departure Advising

Sol Education Abroad is always available to answer any questions you may have. All members of our staff are bilingual and can provide information based on their own experiences abroad. Before you embark on your program, you will receive a full pre departure handbook to prepare you for study abroad experience!

  • Airport Transfers

Ground transportation to and from your program city is included on the established dates.

  • Reception & Farewell Event

We feel that it is essential to receive you in your new city with a welcome reception in order to meet other participants and your directors. And of course, a farewell dinner is provided as a chance to say goodbye and celebrate your new experience.
