ISEP

ISEP (International Student Exchange Program) ISEP is a non-profit network of universities to which SDSU is a member, which provides SDSU students additional study abroad program options. ISEP offers diverse program structures in a variety of destinations unavailable in other program types. On the ISEP Exchange track students pay regular SDSU tuition and fees while on the ISEP Direct track students pay fees to the ISEP organization.

Participants generally enroll in regular classes (taught in English or host language) and integrate into mainstream campus life. However, "learn language" programs are also available for those primarily interested in language and culture.

Students must submit both the preliminary application in Aztecs Abroad and the main application through the ISEP website. It takes up to approximately 8 weeks to receive a response from ISEP concerning placement. Applicants are able to rank up to 10 programs in the ISEP online application.
