Below are programs some of our Traditionally Untraditional Representatives have experienced and recommend to others.

The American Institute of Foreign Study (AIFS) has an office located at Diablo Valley College as well as several other community colleges up and down California. This program partners with community colleges transporting both students and professors to foreign universities allowing students to take their community college classes in another country with guaranteed transferable credit.
