The program’s balance between academics, cultural education, and social events allowed me to do well in my classes but also to explore a fascinating culture while meeting truly friendly and generous people from all over the world”

Advisors & Faculty

We understand that study abroad advisors and faculty members play a key role in a student’s study abroad experience. So, to help you better serve students at your institution, we’re providing you with a one stop shop for your most common needs.

We’ve found most study abroad offices need information on:

Accreditation

Deree is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) — easing the process of course credit transfer back to the student’s home institution.

Please submit the required application documents. We advise prospective students to talk to the study abroad officer at their home institution during this process.

Visa

One of the first steps students will complete in the process of studying abroad will be applying for a student visa. The Study Abroad Office guides students through the visa application process. Once a student has been accepted, they must submit to us the documents listed in the detailed Student Visa Application Instructions. When all documents have been received, the College will obtain approval for a visa on student’s behalf. Once approved, the Study Abroad Office will send the student the paperwork they will need to submit to a local Greek Consulate.

Please see Student Visa Applications Instructions for details on this visa process.

Housing

Study abroad students live in Deree’s spacious residence complex a short walk from campus. Standard accommodations are based on two students sharing a bedroom in a furnished apartment. Meals are self-catered. A grocery store is conveniently located just down the block. Students can choose upgrades such as a single bedroom or a superior single bedroom. Contact the Office of Study Abroad for more details.

Study Abroad On-Campus Internship

Study Abroad students who are enrolled at the American College of Greece through an exchange or visiting student program are eligible to apply for the Study Abroad On-campus Internship Program. Each intern will be assigned an onsite staff supervisor and together will work on semester long projects in order to achieve stated goals.

These are unpaid internship opportunities not for credit. However, together with the award of an internship certificate upon completion, we will be offering a discount against our study abroad fee for the selected students depending on the assignment.

The Study Abroad Student On-Campus Internship Program offers your students the unique opportunity to enrich their study abroad experience and promotes cross-cultural interaction in an international academic environment.

Course Selection

With 21 majors, 32 minors, and over 1,000 courses offered each year, Deree provides students with plenty of courses to choose from in business, fine arts, humanities, social sciences, communication — and more! Please refer to our complete course listing and course descriptions to assist students with course selections.

Pre-registration

After students send us the deposit and visa documents, we’ll send them a Course Registration Form. In the meantime, students should work with an advisor at their home institution to ensure that the courses they wish to take at ACG are approved for transfer back to the home institution. Please refer to our complete course listing and course descriptions to assist students with course selections.

Payment

Our comprehensive study abroad fee covers up to 15 credit hours of tuition, housing, fees and three excursions within Greece. Orientation, faculty support, visa support, and full access to facilities are all included. For more detailed information on pricing, see our tuition & fees page.

Transcripts

We’ll provide students with an official transcript shortly after the conclusion of the semester at no extra cost.
