Applying to a Program

We are excited that you are interested in studying abroad!

Studying abroad is a life-changing experience. However, to ensure the best experience possible, is important to do your research on which program is a best fit for you and start planning as early as you can.
 

Here at Harper, we have two different types of programs:  Faculty-led and Affiliated/Partner Programs

Faculty-led programs are short-term (usually 1 to 3 weeks over summer, spring break, or winter break), led by a Harper College faculty, and with other Harper College students.

Affiliate/Partner programs are programs offered through Harper College's accredited study abroad partner organizations. Our affiliate partners offer programs varying in length (from 2 weeks to a whole semester), varying locations (over 30 countries!), and offer courses in almost every area of study.

FIRST STEP:

Meet with an Office of International Education (OIE) staff members. They can advise you on all program options, timelines, locations, cost, and more!
Email studyabroad@harpercollege.edu to schedule an appointment.
 

SECOND STEP:

If you want to ensure a study abroad program fits into your academic plan, meet your with academic advisor about fitting study abroad into your plan.


THIRD STEP:

Once you know the program you want to apply for, find it through this site's Program Search.
*PLEASE NOTE: If you are applying to any partner programs, you will have to complete an application on their site as well. To easily tell if you are looking at a partner program, there will be an acronym in the name (such as ISA, KEI, CCIS, CAPA, ICISP, etc.)

If you ever have any questions, please email studyabroad@harpercollege.edu!
