Academic Credits

The ISI is designed as a three credit program for a degree seeking student, and credits are issued through the Mount’s criminal justice program.  Adult, continuing education or non-degree seeking students may apply to take the course as an audit. The application process and cost of the program is the same regardless of the issuance of credit.

Please consult your home institution for the ability to transfer these credits to your specific major. Transcripts will be provided to assist in arranging credit at your home university. For questions about the issuance of credit, please contact our Registrar  Chris Weber, at 301-447-5215 or via email at

Health and Safety

While faculty directors and other onsite health staff are available to assist students with medical issues, visiting students are required to carry their own health insurance. It is critically important that students review their personal coverage information and share it with their parents in the case of a medical emergency.

Visiting students and faculty will have open access to all public areas of campus, and access to designated residence facilities via issued keycard. The Mount’s Public Safety officers patrol 24 hours a day to ensure the safety and security of people on campus and the campus grounds.

Foreign Students/Travel Visas

An international student wishing to study in the United States with the ISI Program must already have a non-immigrant  F-1 student visa. For questions regarding foreign student engagement in the program, please contact our Designated SEVIS Official (DSO), Chris Weber, at 301-447-5215 or via email at
