Study Abroad Programs
Nevada's universities offer two types of study abroad programs in cooperation with the University Studies Abroad Consortium (USAC). USAC is an NSHE based program which also includes other member institutions across the US. UNLV has been a member of USAC since 1983.
UNLV Credit Programs
Most students participate in UNLV Credit Programs where each course is reviewed and approved by the appropriate academic department. The department representative assigns a UNLV course number to each class. Students register through the Office of International Programs and receive regular UNLV credit and transcripts.
Transfer Credit Programs
Another type of study abroad program offered by UNLV and USAC is a Transfer Credit Program which is also called a Partnership Program. Partnership Programs are available at universities where there is a full curriculum available in English which allows students to enroll directly in courses offered by the host institution abroad. In Partnership Programs students will receive transfer credit on official transcripts from the host university. Students should be advised to select a wide range of courses prior to departure and work with their UNLV advisor to determine which classes they should complete abroad.
The buttons below provide lists of approved courses for all UNLV Credit programs and also provides direct links to the USAC web site for our Transfer Credit Programs (Partnership Programs). We hope this information will help you to advise UNLV students.
The Office of International Programs can assist academic advisors and students with information about all our international partners. Please contact our office for any assistance. We look forward to working with you.
