Applicants from groups underrepresented in study abroad and those destined for non-traditional locations are given preference, in an effort to make the demographics of U.S. undergraduates studying abroad reflect the rich diversity of the U.S. population.

Students enroll in 45 hours of French Language courses per session based on their French language level (A1 to C1). Previous knowledge of French is not required. Mornings are dedicated to intensive French language instruction, including practice in oral and written communication, reinforcement of grammatical structures, vocabulary enrichment and oral practice in an audio lab. For the afternoons students will enroll in a thematic track taught in French (one or two tracks during Summer I may be taught in English). All thematic tracks include 30 hours of instruction. Alternatively, students may enroll in a non-credit bearing "leisure and visits" program.
For more information about academics please visit the ISEP Caen Summer webpage.
Each session students can also participate free of charge in one of the two one-day excursions offered on the weekend. Pending availability students may attend the second excursion for an additional €30 fee.
All students are expected to maintain at least the equivalent of a full time course load according to Appalachian State and the host university while abroad (whichever is greater).
