Summer 2024 Programs

The information on this page is for matriculated UAC students interested in faculty-led Learning Abroad programs.

Learning Abroad is a transformational experience. Research shows that University of Utah students who learn abroad graduate faster, have higher GPAs, and are more engaged on campus and in the community. Learning Abroad alumni consistently report that their experiences abroad impacted them academically, personally, and professionally. We are excited that you have taken the steps to begin this journey! 

This webpage provides information about your program options, the application process, cost information, and provides a copy of the UAC Learning Abroad Handbook.  If you have questions about this information, contact Learning Abroad at
