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.

Eckerd has a renowned marine science program with a new research facility, the Galbraith Marine Science Laboratory. 



ISEP benefits include a traditional double or triple room in a residence hall. If a student wishes to upgrade their accommodations, they may do so by indicating on their Housing Application included in their acceptance package. Rooming upgrade fees will apply, and students will be required to pay the difference upon arrival.


Incoming students are automatically enrolled in the tier A-250 plan.

Plans can be used in the Continuing Education Center (CEC) Café and Café Bon Appétit on an “all-you-care-to-eat” basis; one block is used per meal when dining at either location.

Block meal plans include an additional flex dollar feature for added convenience. The flex dollar program is a declining balance account that works like a debit card for food. As students spend flex dollars, the flex amount is reduced. This feature offers students the option of purchasing items at Triton’s Pub and Starbucks. As an alternative to using a block meal, students may also use flex dollars to purchase food for themselves or their guests at any of the campus dining locations. The amount of flex dollars included in Tier A-250 (Anytime Plan) is 25 meals Weekly.

Students will be provided meals during fall break and Thanksgiving. Meals are not provided during winter break. Students enrolled in Winter Term, which is necessary for winter break housing, will have a block meal plan during this time. Students who stay in St. Petersburg during Spring Break will be provided with temporary meal tickets for use at the college cafeteria. Students should notify the International Education Office of their plans in advance.

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