Most classes at North Park are small (fewer than 18 students) which means you’ll have close interaction with your professors, who are experts in their fields.

North Park’s Urban Outreach program gives you the opportunity to participate in volunteer activities around the city. Past students have tutored children, provided assistance to the elderly, fed the homeless, worked with refugees and picked up trash from the Chicago River.

As an ISEP student, you can build your own program by choosing your courses from a variety of fields. Use the notes for course searching to help you find which courses are available.

Areas of particular interest to international students include business (accounting, economics, international business, marketing), communication arts, English, foreign languages, history, philosophy, politics and government, and sociology. These subjects in particular are likely to have a wide range of courses available each semester.


Residence Hall rooms are furnished with bed, dresser, desk, and chair. Shared community bathroom facilities are located on each floor of the residence hall. Student will have a shared residence hall room. Single rooms may be available, for an additional fee.


Students receive a meal plan for the campus cafeteria.

*Calendar Year students are not eligible for ISEP housing or meal benefits over the summer break
