ISEP is a non-profit network of over 275 universities worldwide. ISEP offers two types of programs:
1. ISEP exchange: Placement depends upon space available at the host university. The priority application deadline is Aug. 15 for spring programs and Jan. 15 for the fall. Students pay the ISEP program fee that is based on VCU tuition, fees, room and board.
2. ISEP direct: Placement is not dependent upon space available; therefore, most universities accept applications until mid-November and April. Students pay based on the host university’s charges.
