Affiliate Programs

In order to enable students to visit destinations and/or participate in programs that the Padnos International Center does not currently offer, students are able to study via non-GVSU programs as well. You may do so while still maintaining your status as a GVSU student, using your financial aid package to finance your study abroad, and pre-approving the courses that you wish to take abroad. The following is a list of pre-approved affiliate programs in which GVSU students may participate. If you cannot find a program to best suit your needs here, we encourage you to explore other non-GVSU programs beyond this list.
