USAC is a non-profit organization that offers programs in 28 countries, with many locations unique for study abroad. Discover where you'll study abroad at usac.unr.edu.
This program is offered through UC’s partner the University Studies Abroad Consortium (USAC). UC is a member of the USAC consortium and many UC students study abroad on USAC programs worldwide. For this program, you will have to apply both to UC International as well as USAC directly. As long as you follow the processes required by both UC International and USAC, you will find it easy to transfer USAC credits to your UC degree, and your financial aid and UC scholarships can also apply. You are also eligible to apply for a UC International Programs grant as well as other scholarships.
One of the most important preparations before going abroad is academic planning. Students receiving transfer credit from outside institutions (exchange or external) will need prior approval to bring that credit back to UC and be registered for the appropriate study abroad course. Please refer to the UC International webpage for more information.
In order to obtain country-specific visa instructions and resources, refer to your host country’s embassy web page. One way to access this information is via the US Department of State’s webpage at: https://travel.state.gov/content/visas/en.html
UC International is happy to guide UC faculty, staff and students to possible resources about visas for study abroad. Although, applying for the necessary visa for travel is the responsibility of the individual UC traveler. Entry requirements change frequently, and we advise you to pay close attention to consular updates. It is your responsibility to know and address the requirements for your host study abroad destination.
Applying for a visa can be a complicated process. Some UC travelers choose a third party to assist with this process, for example Travisa or A Briggs (mention UC for a possible discount).
All UC students participating in a University of Cincinnati sanctioned or funded international travel program are required to purchase and maintain insurance while abroad. UC International partners with CISI to provide insurance for UC students.
