Travel Study Courses

Unlike most study abroad programs, travel study courses are organized by a faculty member in the University of Maine System who leads a group of students abroad. Theses are offered as winter break, spring break, or May term courses. Some are also offered as summer session courses. They are coordinated through the Office of Lifelong Learning, not the Office of International Programs.

Travel study courses are considered regular UMaine courses. They qualify for financial aid. The grades are included in the student’s cumulative GPA at UMaine.

The following universities also offer travel study courses. They are considered transfer courses and grade is NOT included in the student’s cumulative GPA at UMaine. They qualify for financial aid.
