Obtaining Credit:

DANTA is a private institution but is likely that you can receive credit through your own university by way of an "independent study." You should arrange an independent study with your professor or advisor prior to arriving in Costa Rica. Your DANTA course instructor will provide an academic transcript to your professor or advisor. Generally, students receive 3-6 credit hours for our month long programs, and 3 credits for the 2 week courses.
