Rhodes College boasts top-ranked academics that challenge students to think critically and reflect on their learning. In addition, students often take advantage of the opportunities to make a difference in their world, and more than 80 percent of our students participate in some form of voluntary community service regularly. This makes Rhodes an integral part of the community. Rhodes is a college that brings out the best in each student. This is evident, not only in our adherence to the student-directed honor code but also in our outstanding academics. With numerous student activities and clubs throughout campus, Rhodes students have wonderful opportunities to engage inside as well as outside of the classroom.



Upon acceptance to Rhodes College, ISEP students will be emailed a user name and password to CONTINUE THEIR REGISTRATION to study at Rhodes. Documents regarding housing preferences, medical forms, and other critical information must be completed in advance by all ISEP students.

Housing will be provided on campus.


Dining halls with meal plan benefits will be open during breaks.

In situations when dining halls with meal plan benefits are closed, stipends will be loaded onto students' Rhodes College ID cards for purchasing meals at alternate dining locations on the Rhodes College campus.

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

Special Application Instructions

Students will not receive entrance into all of their preferred classes. We hope to place you in two or three classes you prefer. If there is a class that you must take or you will have difficulty graduating on time from your home institution, please send an email to internationalprograms@rhodes.edu to indicate the critical nature of being placed in that particular class. Students who list only or mostly "mandatory" classes will likely find that Rhodes is not a good academic match. Most successful ISEP students have been very flexible in their course selections.
