Study Abroad Independently

Study Abroad Independently

You can also apply to a university of your interest as a visiting student even if the U of S doesn't have a partnership agreement with them. 

  • Get permission from your College to participate in these independent programs and keep in mind that you do not get any credits towards your U of S degree unless otherwise determined by your College.
  • Your tuition will be assessed as an international student of the institution you will be attending rather than as a U of S student.
