International Short Programs

The Office of International Affairs manages programs offering specialized support for sponsored international students, non-degree international students on the Jayhawk Semester Program, and international scholarship students. 

International Short Programs (ISP) runs approximately 10-12 short-stay programs annually for on campus international students and professionals from a wide variety of countries. These programs run off the university’s academic calendar. They range in length from three weeks to nine months, with approximately 15-30 participants per program. Sometimes two or more programs run simultaneously or overlap. The ISP HESA GA will have the opportunity to be responsible for multi-step projects that are a component of various ISP short programs.
