Office of International Programs (OIP)

The Office of International Programs (OIP) is charged with institutionalizing the university wide globalization initiative. To fulfill this mission the OIP provides resources for students, faculty and staff to increase their level of international awareness and understanding through study abroad, student and faculty exchange, and global perspectives enrichment programs (i.e., workshops, lectures, cultural events, etc.).

Study Abroad, Exchange Programs, and International Internships

The Office of International Programs administers North Carolina A&T’s study abroad, exchange programs and international internships, which provide students the possibility of spending a summer, semester or year at an overseas university. Short-term experience abroad programs are administered by various academic departments and information about these can be obtained at the OIP. Any student in good academic standing may apply to study abroad.
