The Program

ISEP is one of the world’s largest exchange programs. ISEP was established in 1979 at Georgetown University. Today they have grown to over 340 universities in 42 countries. This gives John Carroll University students a wide range of programs to chose from. ISEP is an excellent opportunity for students to enroll directly at the host university in normal university classes, to meet and interact with local students. Room and board on campus is included in all programs.
