Unaffiliated Programs

What if you want to participate in a Study Abroad program that is NOT a Dragons' program or one of our affiliated programs?

Naropa recognizes that there are other worthwhile study abroad programs that may not be part of our Naropa-Sponsored or Naropa Affiliated programs. Students may choose this option, but it important to understand the differences. For unaffiliated programs, students will need to take a leave of absence. If a student chooses this route, federal and state financial aid will not apply and consortium agreements will not be made. Also, there is no guarantee that the credits will transfer to Naropa. (Please note that institutional aid only applies to The Where There Be Dragons-Naropa Sponsored programs.)
