Since 1987, International Studies Abroad (ISA) has provided college students in the United States and Canada the opportunity to explore the world. A primary objective of all ISA programs is to facilitate the learning and development of students. We rely on host universities to provide quality instruction in the classroom, but ISA is the main facilitator of learning outside of the classroom.
ISA students stay in homestays or student residences with international and Spanish students. All ISA housing options are either within walking distance or conveniently located near public transportation. Travel times to the various university buildings generally range between 15 and 40 minutes depending on housing and class locations. For more information please visit the ISA Salamanca webpage.
The cost of housing will be included in the invoice that ISA sends to Appalachian and students will be billed through their Appalachian term bill.
