UCR Study Abroad - UCR Summer Abroad Program

UCR Summer Study Abroad

The UCR Summer Study Abroad (UCRSSA) program offers short-term, UCR faculty-led programs designed to keep you on academic track in an international setting. Take advantage of this academic program to explore a foreign country first-hand and to experience the power of cultural exchange. Past students have called their study abroad experience "transformational" and “an experience of a lifetime.”

    • Students will earn 8 units of UC credit by successfully completing two courses.
    • The program offers small classroom settings, with a maximum of 30 students, led by UC Riverside faculty.
    • Courses taught in the Summer Study Abroad program are taken directly from the UC Riverside General Catalog and taught by UC Riverside faculty.
    • UCR students will be eligible for summer financial aid for completing 8 units. Other students should check with their home campus about financial aid.
