Summer Exchange Programs

twoColumn twoLeft

The summer semester can be the most convenient time to study abroad: fewer courses are offered on UNF's campus, and it can be nice to escape the Jacksonville heat! Our summer study abroad programs allow students to take six credit hours at our partner institutions worldwide.  Students also have the opportunity to participate in a Summer A and a Summer B program in order to earn up to 12 credits and spend more time immersed in other cultures.

Applications for Summer 2023 open August 29 and close March 15.  Contact coggin.abroad@unf.edu for more information.

Students participating in Summer 2023 exchange programs are required to attend two pre-departure meetings.  Both are mandatory and take place on the following dates:

  • Friday, March 24, 2023
  • Friday, April 14, 2023

More information to come during the fall semester!

Summer Exchange Application Process

We are glad you plan to study abroad this summer! Our aim is to make your study abroad experience as smooth as possible so you can focus on academics and experiential learning. If you have questions about the application process, contact us at any time. 

Applications are due March 15.  

Save the date for mandatory orientations on March 25 and April 15.

How to Apply

  1. Apply for or renew your passport.  U.S. passport processing time is currently about 14-16 weeks, so apply today.
  2.  Complete the following forms and email them to goglobal@unf.edu:
    1. Summer Exchange Application Form
    2. Summer Study Abroad Policies Form 
    3. Credits Form (complete this form with your academic advisor)
  3.  After completing steps 1 and 2 above, you'll receive further instructions on completing the application process. 

How to Complete the Credits Form

The credits form ensures that you, your academic advisor, and International  Business all agree on how your courses from abroad will transfer back to UNF.  The form can be signed manually or digitally, but it does require a conversation with your academic advisor.  Refer to your summer study abroad program's webpage to review the courses you may choose from.  With your advisor, enter (1) each course you plan to take abroad, (2) whether the prerequisites have been completed or are in progress, and (3) how each course will count toward your major.  Your advisor will note your current standing and any other necessary information.  After completing the form with your academic advisor, save a scanned copy to upload into your online application.

Payment Process

About the Student Cost

Each summer study abroad has costs associated with the products and services that are part of the program, including student lodging, business and/or cultural visits and excursions, entry fees, international health insurance, etc. Students are responsible for paying these costs to the partner school or the company/organization providing the service.  Sometimes this is done via credit card, sometimes via international wire transfer.  Students will receive instructions from their host institution regarding these costs and the best way to pay them.

UNF Tuition and Fees

Students pay UNF for their summer tuition and fees instead of paying tuition and fees to their host university.  This payment process is handled the same way as if the student were staying at UNF for the summer term.  See the UNF Controller's Office webpage for tuition and fees for more information.  Students may also contact UNF Student Financial Services in Hicks Hall.
