Types of Programs

Study Abroad– refers to a credit bearing course or series of courses taken overseas, for which the student will receive a transcript from the overseas university. In the case of a faculty-led program, the student will register for the home university course and receive a grade from the faculty leader. Students can study abroad for a semester, summer or academic year. Study Abroad may take place under the following conditions:

1. Exchange –provides students an affordable way to participate in study abroad. These programs utilize an established relationship between specific universities that exchange students with each other with each student paying the tuition and fees at their home university and not at the host university;

2.   Direct Study Abroad program is administered by an organization offering study abroad support services (i.e. School for International Training (SIT); American Institute for Foreign Studies (AIFS); International Studies Abroad (ISA) are a few providers. 

3.    Faculty-Led - programs that are organized and/or accompanied by an NCAT faculty member, usually during the summer where the faculty leader teaches a course or supervises a research project.

Other Educational Opportunities Abroad– these educational opportunities can be credit bearing or non-credit bearing. Other opportunities include research, internships, and service-learning.
