Term abroad programs

Fall, winter or spring

(In 2019-2020 Augustana will move to a semester calendar with an intensive January inter-term. Information on Augustana’s semester-based and January-term based programming for 2019-2020 and beyond will be available in spring 2018.)

Trimester programs include a variety of courses in different fields, allowing students to earn graduation requirements while studying with Augustana faculty abroad, local faculty or both.

These programs are typically offered either annually (internship programs) or every three years (study programs) and are open to sophomores, juniors and seniors. 

Most trimester abroad programs in the fall and spring are for a 10-week stay. Winter programs typically include five weeks of coursework on campus in November and December and five-to-seven weeks overseas in January and February.

All Augustana trimester abroad programs are Augie Choice eligible, and all are considered Learning Communities.

Benefits of term programs

  1. All standard Augustana Financial Aid you would receive for a term will travel with you.
  2. Because you are replacing a term on campus with a term abroad the overall cost can be lower than any other program type.
  3. Trimester Away programs offer a wide range of courses and are open to all majors.
  4. All Trimester Abroad Programs are Learning Communities in the Augustana General Ed. Program.
  5. Trimester programs of 10+ weeks can provide the deepest immersion experience.

Eligibility

Eligibility requirements may vary. Applications are open to all current Augustana sophomores, juniors or seniors in solid academic standing (2.0 GPA minimum, 2.5 for exchanges).  

Augie Choice funds are available to students following completion of 60 academic credits (typically first available for the summer after the sophomore year.)  Additionally, some programs permit students to utilize Augie Choice as sophomores.  Program sites are subject to change and may or may not be repeated in future years.
