Study Abroad Details

Why Study Abroad?

  • About 40 countries to choose from through UNC-EP and ISEP!
  • Summer, semester and full academic year options.
  • Open to undergraduate and graduate students from nearly all fields of study.
  • Earn up to 15 credit hours per semester and up to 6 credit hours per summer.
  • Study in English or a variety of other languages.
  • For many programs, the expected cost for student tuition, fees, room and board would be about the same as a semester or year at NCCU.
  • Most forms of financial aid, such as grants or loans for which you are eligible at NCCU, may be applied to study abroad.  Veterans benefits may also be applied.  Even if you are normally ineligible for financial aid, you should still submit a financial aid application.  You may find that you are eligible for additional funding.
  • Check out the “International Scholarships and Fellowships” section of the OIA Web sites for links to additional funding opportunities.
