ELAP students will attend the following institution if they are participating in an ISA program in conjunction with their ELAP program:
*Universidad de Salamanca Cursos Internacionales en Cusco

Students particpating in an ISA Academic Program plus ELAP during the semester will work 5-10 hours per week at a local host organization while attending classes at the host university. The ELAP placement will begin 1-2 weeks after the first week of classes and end the week prior to final exams. Students participating in an ISA Academic Program during the summer will begin their ELAP program after the ISA Summer program ends. Participants will spend between 15–35 hours per week at a local organization.

Students participating only in an ELAP Service-Learning and Internship program will not attend classes but work 15–35 hours per week at a local organization. All participants will develop an ELAP Portfolio throughout the program which includes reflective essays, group discussions, logs of hours, a supervisor evaluation and a certificate of completion.

Select ELAP placements are eligible for academic credit. Participants can earn 1-6 credits based on the number of contact hours accrued at the host organization and successful completion of the ELAP Portfolio. Visit the ELAP website for more information.


Universidad de Salamanca Cursos Internacionales en Cusco

The Universidad de Salamanca Cursos Internacionales en Cusco is located at the ISA Study Center, and was developed in partnership with the Universidad de Salamanca to meet the ever-growing interest in studying abroad in Cusco. Students take classes at the study center with other ISA students, and classes are taught by local, visiting and US faculty. Students can take courses in Spanish and/or Quechua, culture, history and literature, and students engage in learning that promotes understanding of their new culture and surroundings. All students will receive an official transcript from the Universidad de Salamanca, upon successful completion of the program.
