Program Description:
Since 1975, over seven thousand students have enjoyed the special educational experience offered by the Academic Semester Abroad Program. The wide variety of studio arts and humanities courses allows our students to participate in a program that meets their individual educational requirements and offers the significant cultural opportunity of living overseas. The undergraduate student body at SACI is made up of approximately 98% US college-enrolled students. Those who have completed the Academic Semester Abroad Program have received recognition for their work at SACI from over 250 university-level institutions throughout the world. Use the search tool on the SACI Affiliated Schools page to see if your school has granted credits for study at SACI. 

Most students follow a program selected from the wide variety of subjects that SACI offers. In both the Fall and Spring semesters, a student may enroll in five courses for a total of 15 credits. It is suggested that students do not register for more than three studio courses per semester. Students in the Academic Semester Program have opportunities to exhibit their artwork at SACI. 

Undergraduates in good standing at any college, university, or art school with a minimum GPA of 2.75 are invited to apply to our Academic Semester Abroad Program. Independent US or international students who meet equivalent standards may also apply.
