Students may participate in HMC's Domestic Exchange Program during their sophomore or junior year. Processing their application through HMC, tudents may choose to attend Swarthmore College or Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute for a semester. Cost for the program is the same as if the student were on-site at HMC; payment is made to HMC, and payment plans may continue to be implemented. On-campus housing is guaranteed at the host campus, and students are able to enroll in the same manner as students at the host college. Information on these programs is available through the Office of Career Services.
