Most EICC Study Abroad programs are designed as credit courses. This allows you to earn credits in your major program and/or work toward college transfer while being engaged in experiential learning in exciting world locations. Study Abroad courses are included on your EICC transcript and participation in a Study Abroad program allows students to maintain enrollment privileges including financial aid, wait lists for programs, and credits accumulated for college transfer.
“Every day there changed my life. One day we’d be talking to students, the next day we’d visit with government officials and the day after that we were talking with the people at the Jordan Chamber of Commerce. It was worth every penny.” - Kristie Miller
“I had never been to another country. John (our instructor) told us this would be a once-in-a-lifetime trip. Being exposed to a Middle East culture I didn’t know much about was an eye-opening experience.” - Korey Kreimeyer
