Global Programming


2019-2020 and After

The Office of Global Programming is excited to announce the following BreakAways scheduled for 2020 and after - the document linked has additional details. Start dreaming now about the following possibilities!

Study Abroad

The Study Abroad program at Illinois College allows students with majors in any discipline to spend a semester or an academic year studying outside the United States. While abroad, students usually study at a host university, but may also choose to participate in internships or other approved international programs such as the TANDEM program in Madrid for future Spanish teachers. These programs challenge students to adapt to new cultures, expose them to diverse perspectives, and often enhance their ability to communicate in a second language.

Students interested in study abroad consult with the Director of Global Programming about an approved partner program that will best suit their personal goals and academic needs.

Plan for Breaks

Make proper arrangements ahead of time for the various breaks throughout the academic year.

Staying on Campus

If you plan to stay on campus over break, look out for emails from the Residential Life staff that lets you know how and when to submit your request. Find their contact information below if you have any questions.


Plan your transportation in time before every break. IC offers shuttles to and from Springfield and Chicago.

Host Families

If you need a place to stay over the semester break you can request to find a host for part of the period.
