University Studies Abroad Consortium
For 30 years, University Studies Abroad Consortium (USAC) has provided university students with affordable, valuable study abroad programs in 26 countries including many locations unique for study abroad. USAC provides an authentic, quality context in which students may grow into engaged citizens of the world, not only in the classroom but also through fieldtrips, integrated living and academic experiences, sports, internships, and volunteer and service learning opportunities.
External Study Abroad Approval Process
Students participating with an External Program are required to complete Temple's External Programs approval process. Completion of the approval process allows students to maintain full-time enrollment status, apply eligible financial aid and transfer credits earned abroad back to Temple.
Request to Study Abroad
To request approval to study abroad with USAC, please complete and submit a Request to Study Abroad application. Your request will be reviewed to ensure that the program is an appropriate fit and that you meet the general eligibility requirements for study abroad. Once your request has been processed, you will be informed of the decision via an email to your Temple email account. If your request is approved, you'll be granted access to remaining pre-departure information, materials, and requirements. Requests to study abroad must be received on or before the application deadline.
