Northwood Sponsored Programs are designed and administered by the International Programs Office and faculty members. They are led by Northwood professors who also teach the courses. The length of the programs range from short to long and participants earn from three to fifteen credit hours depending on the program.

The selection of programs, their length, and their cost will vary from year to year.

Northwood Sponsored Programs charge a comprehensive fee. This will include most of the transportation, board, tuition*, most meals, and event fees. Student will have to pay for personal expenses and some transport (to and from the departure site and personal travel on the trip).

To apply to a program, please submit the following material:

1. Study Abroad Application Form
