Rogue Community College is one of seven community college members belonging to the Oregon International Education Consortium (OIEC), which sponsors the Spring Quarter in Barcelona program. The OIEC accepts up to 30 students for the program from the member colleges in Oregon. Students from other Oregon colleges and residents of contiguous states (CA, ID, NV, WA) are welcome to apply through one of the OIEC colleges and also qualify for in-state tuition rates.
Applicants from other states may also participate, but pay out-of-state tuition. In any case, all students are accepted on a first-come basis. Barcelona Study Abroad Experience (SAE) is our partner institution that makes all program arrangements, from travel to insurance to housing. But program payments are made to OIEC, which also makes all academic arrangements, including course offerings, grade reporting and faculty selection.
You are taught by Oregon instructors who accompany you to Barcelona. All tuition costs are paid to RCC, and you register from the list in COURSE OFFERINGS by first receiving clearance from the OIEC campus representative, Ryan Maple.
Cost: $6445* Based on 15-19 participants.
