Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Q: Do credits transfer?
A: Yes. Once you are accepted to a program, we figure out what courses you will take abroad and their Harper equivalents. If you are participating in a faculty-led program, that is a Harper course so no need to even worry about transferring the credit back. :)

Q: Does financial aid apply?
A: Yes, you can apply financial aid towards a study abroad program; however, do make sure to meet with a financial aid counselor to know what your financial aid package can cover.

Q: Will I be staying with a host family or dorm while abroad?
A: It depends on the program.

Q: Are there scholarships available?
A: Yes! There are three specific Harper College study abroad scholarships plus tons of external scholarships as well. Check them out on our scholarship page! Also if you are applying to one of Harper's partner programs, they have their own scholarships PLUS you receive some form of grant for being a Harper student.
