Program Providers

​Study Abroad Program Providers

​Program providers specialize in assisting students with their study abroad plans by providing comprehensive advising and support, full time resident staffing, on-site offices, housing, excursions, VISA support, registration, and assistance with obtaining an official transcript from the host university. Program providers offer many additional benefits to Grove City College students: reduced application fees, scholarship opportunities, and personalized and individualized log-ins to website information.
