Creighton-In Programs

Semester and Academic Year Abroad Programs

Creighton closely partners with many institutions abroad to offer high-quality study abroad opportunities for all Creighton students. Students may apply to study at one of the listed partner university abroad and will pay tuition and fees (and sometimes room and board) to Creighton for the semester abroad. Students choosing to apply to Creighton-In partner schools can keep scholarships and financial aid for the program term abroad!

Encuentro Dominicano

Creighton’s Premier Academic Service-Learning Program

Encuentro Dominicano embodies the Jesuit mission of promoting justice, striving for excellence, and dedication to the truth. Encuentro centers around service-learning, travel, and building community with fellow students and Dominicans—all while experiencing the rich and vibrant culture of the Dominican Republic. Encuentro Dominicano is fall semester program only. The program is not available in the spring term.

Challenge Yoursef. Love Others. Build Community.

Summer & Break Programs Abroad

Faculty-Led Programs Abroad (FLPAs)

Faculty-led programs abroad are a popular avenue for Creighton University students to participate in a short-term program abroad. Courses are designed and run by Creighton University faculty members who lead the students during the experience abroad. Programs range from approximately one week to 4 weeks, and academic credit varies. View summer & break programs abroad!

Summer Programs through Creighton-In and ISEP

Many Creighton-In partnership universities offer summer and short-term program opportunities for students. ISEP Direct, another Creighton partnership study abroad organization, offers programs worldwide, too! View summer & break programs abroad!

ISEP Exchange + Direct

Creighton University partners with ISEP, a non-profit international education organization, to provide additional program and destination opportunities for Creighton University students abroad. 

ISEP Exchange programs are considered within the portfolio of Creighton University exchange partnerships. Students participating in ISEP Exchange Programs Abroad for a semester or academic year may use their Creighton University awards and scholarships. 

ISEP Direct programs are considered non-Creighton programs for financial billing. Tuition, room, board, and fees for ISEP Direct programs are paid to the program provider, NOT to Creighton. Discounts and scholarships are not portable.

Non-Creighton Programs

Programs Outside Creighton's Partnerships

If you are interested in a program outside of Creighton’s existing options, you must first check with your academic advisor and major department to find out if they support the coursework offered on that program and the host institution in question. If the department feels that the program provides a strong academic offering, they may communicate this with the Vice Provost of Global Engagement. The deadline to work with GEO toward a participation in a non-Creighton program option is one year prior to the start of the relevant study abroad term

For example, Spring semester program proposals must be presented by January 15 of the prior year, and Fall semester proposals must be presented by August 15 of the prior year.  Processing non-Creighton program options takes significant time, verification of high levels of student support, course accreditation, grade transfer ability, etc. Tuition, room, board, and fees for these programs are paid to the program provider, NOT to Creighton. Discounts and scholarships are not portable. If you have any questions about this process, please contact the GEO directly.

“I think Creighton is connected on a global scale because it offers so many programs in different parts of the world, and encourages students from different parts of the world to come to Creighton.”
