College Credit

College credit is currently provided through schools in the United States. Not all schools will accept credit from programs, so it is imperative that students seek approval from their home school PRIOR to enrolment. This usually involves a "petition" form from your study abroad office, registrar's office or a general advisement center. Please contact a representative for more detailed information regarding this process.

“I really enjoyed my experience in Montezuma.  The people were all so wonderful - students and teachers alike!  I think that it takes a certain kind of person to step out of their comfort zone and try a new experience like that, and it makes for a really good group of students in the school.  The Spanish classes were perfect for what I was looking for - mostly conversation, with any grammar we wanted to learn.  Luz was a wonderful teacher and a phenomenal person - I really enjoyed the time that I spent with her.  Guillermo and Mauricio were fun and helpful.  Dagmar was spectacular - by far the best yoga class I have ever taken.” - Ashley Winter, Spanish, Surfing and Yoga
