Stay on track with Flex
ISA Flex Summer provides students with the unique opportunity to recoup credits lost from canceled summer programs, courses, and internships.
The program takes advantage of ISA Flex, in partnership with Arizona State University (ASU) Online, which was created to make study abroad more accessible. Too often, course availability or the need to meet major requirements dictates where students go abroad or if they even go at all. The new ISA Flex program allows students to study anywhere in the world while ensuring they get the credits they need thanks to ASU Online’s extensive course options.
ISA Flex Summer allows students to capitalize on the early benefits of this new partnership and ensure that they can stay on track during these unprecedented and unpredictable times.

About the Course: Future Readiness and Career Planning in a New Global Context
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, many students' lives have been altered in these unprecedented times. Aside from plans to study abroad or walk in a graduation ceremony, many are dealing with ways the virus is impacting everyday life.
This three-credit course, with credit provided by Carroll College, is grounded in the current atmosphere of collective uncertainty and will support students as they prepare for post-pandemic futures. Throughout this course, students can expect to develop the following skills:
1) Make positive personal meaning of the negative impacts they face by reevaluating goals and personal values for a more sustainable career in times of great uncertainty
2) Treat the novel coronavirus as a collective global experience by learning to shift their frame of reference on their study and career plans in ways that acknowledge transnational interconnectedness they may not have been aware of until 2020
