Who is eligible for ISA Flex?
Any student accepted and enrolled in an ISA study abroad program may add ISA Flex to their program.
How many courses can I take?
Students may enroll in a single ASU online course as part of their ISA study abroad program. Students are responsible for fulfilling all academic requirements of any course they choose to take. We advise all students who enroll in ISA Flex to consider their full course load and to not take more courses than they can manage in a single term.
What courses can I take?
You can take any available ASU Online courses for which you meet the pre-requisites. You can find the list of ASU Online courses on the ASU website.
When do I have to decide if I want to add ISA Flex to my study abroad program?
In order to add ISA Flex to your study abroad program, you will need to complete the ISA Flex registration form in your ISA Student Portal by the deadline for the term in which you are studying abroad. This is generally in April for summer programs, July for fall, and December for spring. However, the sooner you register, the more courses will be available.
What does ISA Flex cost?
The base cost for ISA Flex is $1,850, which covers all tuition and fees for any standard 3-credit ASU Online course. Any courses with more than 3 credits or special fees (such as Lab fees) will incur an additional cost.
How will I be billed?
The cost of ISA Flex will be added to your ISA student account when you add ISA Flex to your study abroad program. Any additional fees will be added to your ISA account after the add/drop deadline for ASU Online courses for that term. The payment deadline for ISA Flex is two weeks prior to the start of each ASU Online term (generally in May for summer, August for fall, and January for spring).
Which programs are compatible with ISA Flex?
All ISA study abroad programs are compatible with ISA Flex; however, some programs may be more suitable than others. Due to factors such as the course load at the host institution, differences in the ASU and host institution academic calendars, and rigor of the courses of the host institution, ISA Flex may work better for some programs than others. Please contact your Program Manager to discuss how ISA Flex can fit into your study abroad program.
How do I transfer ISA Flex credit to my home university?
After the successful completion of your course with ASU, you will be able to order an official ASU transcript through the My ASU system, which can then be provided to your home university. However, ISA recommends talking to your home university’s academic and study abroad advisors regarding approval and articulation of your course prior to enrolling.
Can I change or drop my ASU course or withdraw from ISA Flex?
You can withdraw from ISA Flex without penalty at any time prior to the refund deadline for that term. This is generally in May for summer programs, August for Fall, and January for Spring.
