Approved Program Provider Profiles

Below you will find a list of profiles of Illinois Tech's approved Program Providers:

 

Provider: API

Academic Programs International (API)

Provider Overview
Academic Programs International (API) was founded in 1997 by four women (the Founding Mamas) dedicated to providing high-quality, affordable study abroad programs for U.S. students. Their diverse experiences abroad, first as students and later as professionals, shaped their philosophy on the value of international education as a means of promoting intellectual curiosity, cultural sensitivity and holistic personal development. API firmly believes that extensive pre-departure preparation, coupled with strong support services on-site, facilitates academic, cultural and linguistic learning. Within the supportive environment of the API programs, API participants are encouraged to explore their host communities and become increasingly independent and confident in their own abilities. API also believes that international educational experiences should be accessible to as many participants as possible, and in that vein, seeks to include as many components in the program price as possible for participants at a low cost.

Types of Programs: Semester, Summer, & Internship

CEA Study Abroad 

Provider Overview
Since 1997, CEA has maintained one simple philosophy: To provide high-quality international academic programs and services.

You'll earn credits while gaining valuable skills. And you'll discover more about yourself than you ever thought possible. Perks like on-site staff to show you the ropes, cultural engagement activities, and 24/7 health and wellness support enhance your life abroad, while internships, service learning, and volunteer opportunities help build your career readiness.
