Program Description:


 Semester and Academic Year Exchanges

Please Note: You must meet with the ISEP Coordinator before starting your application or your application will not be considered.

Want to study at another university for a semester or full academic year?  With ISEP, you have the opportunity to live and study abroad for a semester or year at over 170 institutions in more than 50 countries.  Choose from locations like Argentina, Czech Republic, Austria, Thailand, Germany, and many more!  Studying abroad through ISEP is an independent and immersive experience where students study and live at another university with students from around the world.

What is ISEP?

ISEP (International Student Exchange Program) is an organization that provides exchange opportunities for students from around the world.  There are two “types” of ISEP programs:
ISEP Exchange: You will pay for an international student to come take your place at KSU. 
ISEP Direct: Student will apply directly to a host university with the fee determined by the host university.

To learn more about ISEP, universities that will accept KSU students, chances of placement at each institution, application process, etc., please visit ISEP’s website at

Academic Credit

Students can take courses to fulfill general education requirements, major courses, or electives.  All courses must be approved by KSU prior to departure.

Academic Requirements

Cumulative GPA: 2.75 (some host universities require 3.0)

Language Proficiency: Many universities offer a variety of courses taught in English. Varies by site and program, but requirement of 3-5 semesters of university-level language courses are not uncommon in French, Spanish, or German-speaking countries.

Program Dates

Dates vary based upon the host institution’s calendar, but the following are general guidelines…

Fall: Semester starts July-September and ends November-January

Spring: Semester starts January-March and ends April-June

Academic Year: Begins July-September and ends April-June

Summer: June-August *Note: During summer semester, students may only participate in ISEP-Direct.

Please notice that many fall semester schedules are later than the US, particularly in Europe.  This means that if KSU students spend their fall semester abroad, they may not necessarily get back in time for spring classes at KSU; it typically works better for students to go for an academic year or spring semester.

      ISEP Exchange: You will pay for a student to take your place at KSU.  The total cost will include…
ISEP-Exchange application/placement fees
Cost of attendance at KSU for one semester: 15 credit hours tuition, mandatory fees, on-campus housing, meal plan, etc.
