Non-Villanova Summer Programs

If you can't go abroad for the semester, there are plenty of summer options available.  Students may choose to participate in a Villanova Summer Program, but there are many non-Villanova Summer Programs too.  All non-Villanova Summer Programs must meet the same program criteria as the semester programs, in addition to the following points:

  • All students must attend a group information session held in the Office of International Studies
  • All programs should meet Villanova University's policy regarding overseas study and must be at least six weeks long.
  • All students must take at least two courses for a total of six Villanova credits (If the program is a longer duration, students may take more credits - i.e. a 9 week program may yield 9 VU credits)
  • If studying in a non-English speaking country, students must take at least one course in the language.
  • All students must fill out a Prior Approval Form with an adviser in the Office of International Studies to receive credit. The final official overseas transcript must be sent to the OIS.
  • Though full tuition payment for a non-Villanova summer program is made to the Host University or Program Provider, an additional administrative fee of $250 will be added to the student's Villanova bill for participation in a non-Villanova summer program.
