Other Programs

A non-affiliated study abroad program is one that is not sponsored by, affiliated with, or already approved by Minot State's Office of International Programs.

Minot State offers a wide variety of study abroad opportunities through affiliated providers and partner institutions, but you can also take advantage of numerous programs offered through national organizations, consortia or another university by submitting a proposal that clearly demonstrates the following:

1) The proposed program has high standards of academic quality, intercultural immersion, health and safety oversight. 

2) You have a compelling academic need that is not met by an already approved study abroad program, but that will be met by the proposed program.

To start the review process, complete a Non-Affiliate Program Review Form and submit it it, along with the required attachments, to the Director of International Programs

Proposals will be considered by the Director of International Programs, in consultation with the Minot State International Advisory Committee if necessary.
