Program Description:


Grizzlies have traveled to many places in Africa, Europe, South and Central Americas, and Asia.

One of our missions is to increase the number of GGC students participating in study abroad programs across disciplines and expand student participation in a broad range of other international opportunities.

GGC's external study abroad partners enable students to study for a semester or an academic year in a wide range of countries and credit-bearing programs. This means that in addition to our GGC and GGC exchange programs, students can search and apply for a program that aligns with their disciplinary and regional interests. Classes may be taught in English, the host language, or both. It is up to students to ensure that courses taken through GGC external study abroad partners count as transfer credit (see below).



Academic Programs International (API) was founded in 1997 by our founding mamas, who were dedicated to providing high-quality, affordable study abroad programs for U.S. students. Their diverse experiences abroad, first as students and later as professionals, shaped their philosophy on the value of international education as a means of promoting intellectual curiosity, cultural sensitivity and holistic personal development.

API's mission is to encourage students of all ages to embark on an experiential education journey that enriches lives and communities, helping every student, college, and company achieve their goals.

API offers hundreds of college study abroad programs in Africa, Latin America, Asia, Australia, and Europe. Their programs are available for covering semester (fall & spring), summer, and full academic year terms. 

Learn more about API and their study abroad programs here.


*Read this application process and other sections of this brochure thoroughly and reach out to the Office of Internationalization ( for any questions or additional information.*

The deadline to sign up for programs with API is specific to each program. Click here to discover programs by discipline/area of study, country/city, terms, language of instruction and program type. Please give yourself plenty of time to complete all GGC and API requirements.

There are TWO applications you will need to complete, one for GGC and one for the partner program to which you are applying.

This GGC application process will work in phases; some “materials,” questionnaires, learning content modules, and other requirements might show up as you move along the application (as your status is moved from “pending” to “accepted” to “committed”). Therefore, do not think once you have completed the initial requirements that you are fully accepted and good to go. Once your application status has been moved to “committed” then you will know that you can move to complete the SECOND application (the university's application on their separate website).

Each program offered by API has different eligibility requirements, start and end dates, costs, and application deadlines. Click here to discover programs by discipline/area of study, country/city, terms, language of instruction and program type. Then, select 'Personalize & Apply.'

API may ask GGC to verify your eligibility before your application can be considered, so it is a good idea to reach out to Moriah King ( early in the process to help you navigate the application process. Moriah is your primary point of contact, so feel free to reach out for help. If she cannot help you directly, she can get you in contact with whoever can.


Before selecting your program with API, review the courses offered on the programs brochure. Course registration occurs at the time of application. Plan to meet with your academic advisor to decide how your anticipated course load fits in your degree of study.


As a part of the application process, students should see a
Course Approval Form and Transient Request Form in their "requirements" section after beginning their GGC application.
Instructions are listed, forms are hyperlinked, and reach out to Moriah King ( to understand more about how to fill out these forms and who you will need to work with to complete them. Make sure to include backup courses in these forms, as your preferred options might be canceled, fill up, or otherwise become unavailable.

Academic advisors cannot advise on course equivalencies. This will be handled with the Study Abroad Point of Contact and Dean approvers, which Moriah can help you determine. The student is responsible for determining which courses they would like to take abroad and how they would like to be transferred into their degree program. Students must work with an academic advisor to understand how GGC courses will fit into their degree program, but again, they cannot advise on course equivalencies themselves. 

Prior to departure, confirm with the registrar that you are registered correctly prior to departure.
This step is critical for receiving academic credit towards your degree, in addition to receiving financial aid for the term, if applicable. Make sure that you have registered for courses that have been pre-approved in your Course Approval Form/Transient Form! If you are unable to register for your preferred courses, make sure to send us updated forms.

After program completion, grades do not automatically transfer back.
It is the student's responsibility to have a transcript sent back to GGC in a timely manner for review to have courses reviewed and entered into their degree program thereafter. Please be aware of different grading scales abroad and how those might transfer to GGC. Please also be aware of different academic calendars and how those most likely will not align exactly with GGC's term dates.


PROGRAM COST: The total cost for each program varies. Click here to learn more about each program's cost, start and end dates, course load, eligibility criteria, and application deadline.
FINANCIAL AID:* Your GGC financial aid can pay towards tuition if you study abroad through the GGC Office of Internationalization, meaning if you fill out the GGC app and are fully accepted/committed. Although you will not be taking courses at GGC, you will at that point still be considered a matriculated student with our office's nomination/recommendation on your program provider's application. However, if you choose to study abroad independently and do not fill out this GGC application/are not recommended by our office, you will not be eligible for financial aid. You will need to speak with the financial aid office to confirm the exact amount that your financial aid can cover for tuition, how you usually would for a local semester at GGC.

PARTNER PROGRAM SCHOLARSHIPS & FINANCIAL AID: API awards millions of dollars in study abroad scholarships annually ranging from $250 – $2,000 per student. As a API Affiliated college, you are eligible to apply for unique scholarship opportunities. The deadline to apply for these affiliate scholarships is: April 15 (Summer), June 25 (Fall & Academic Year), and November 10 (Spring). To review all other scholarships that API offers, the requirements for each, as well as the award amounts that are available click here.

*Bear in mind that your financial aid cannot pay for costs such as airfare, food, housing, etc. You will make payments directly to your program provider.
