For International Students and Scholars



When budgeting for your time as an exchange visitor, you may take into account the following expenses:


  • SEVIS and visa issuance fees
  • Travel to/from the United States
  • Room and board
  • Health insurance
  • Personal spending money



The local housing market is competitive and vacancy rates are low. For these reasons, it is recommended that you make housing arrangements prior to your arrival. Off-campus housing listings can be found in the Burlington Free Press, Seven Days, or through local real estate agents. Additional options include two hotels located directly across the street from campus: Days Inn Colchester or Handy’s Extended Stay Suites. Inquire about discounted rates to affiliates of Saint Michael’s College.
