Semester Programs

Semester study abroad programs provide a range of courses to choose from and students earn a full courseload of typically fifteen UP credits. The program cost includes tuition and international insurance. Semester study abroad program cost is very similar to UP on-campus tuition cost, and financial aid and scholarships apply, except for certain IES Abroad programs (more information below). Program cost may include housing and a meal stipend for groceries and meals or meals provided by host families, depending on the program. Applications are due in November for the following fall, spring or summer.
