Semester/Academic Year Programs
A semester or academic year abroad is the traditional study abroad experience. You will have the opportunity to fully immerse yourself in the culture of your host country(ies) and be able to say you’ve lived abroad. A semester/academic year abroad is typically the most cost effective way to study abroad and frequently permits you to utilize your federal/state financial aid towards funding your experience.
Short Term Programs
Short term programs allow students to spend the Winter Term (commonly referred to as “J-Term”), May Term or a portion of their summer abroad. This option is perfect for students that are unable to spend an entire semester abroad due to athletic or academic commitments. However, short term study abroad is usually completely self funded as your state/federal financial aid rarely applies.
Your abroad experience(s) do not have to end with graduation! Several options exist for GC grads to go abroad.
