USAC Programs: University Studies Abroad Consortium offers summer, semester,
and year-long programs to almost every region in the world. The consortium is a one-stop shop offering housing, academics, field trips, internships, field study courses, and more. USAC provides opportunities to get involved and interact with locals, including students from your host country. In operation for more than 25 years, this organization promotes diversity in and out of the classroom. Participants hail from more than 700 universities worldwide; you'll be sitting in class and traveling with students from all over the United States as well as other countries. USAC resident directors conduct your orientation, assist with housing, and provide support in your adjustment to a new culture. Queens College students come back with rave reviews. USAC offers entry level (no previous language experience) through advanced level language courses. Programs are affordable and scholarships are available--USAC awarded $250,000 to students last year. Another clincher: You can use your financial aid and other scholarships toward consortium programs. We HIGHLY recommend USAC, if a semester or year long abroad experience is what you are seeking.
