Short-Term Programs

Short-Term Programs generally take place over summer, spring, or winter breaks. All short-term programs are led by an SUU faculty or staff member. Summer programs range from 2-4 weeks long and offer between 3-6 course credits. Shorter 1 week programs, called Cultural Immersions, are non-credit bearing and usually have a discounted program price. Programs change year to year, going to new locations and focusing on different areas of study (i.e. Communication in Fiji and Tonga, Psychology in Greece, etc.).

Additional Information 

  • After applying, a $300 down payment will be charged to the applicant's SUU account. That same $300 will then be deducted from the total program price. 

  • After being accepted into a program, travelers will be emailed information about how to find and submit all pre-departure documents such as travel authorizations and emergency contact forms. Information regarding how to apply for scholarships will be distributed as well. 

  • Short-term programs may not be used to help a student achieve full-time student status over the summer and are not eligible for tuition-based financial aid such as FAFSA. Scholarships, such as those found here, may still be applicable. 
  • Most program fees do not include the cost of airfare or meals.
