Summer Study Away Programs

Summer can be a great time for a study away experience, especially for students whose regular academic-year schedules are packed with commitments such as: practice and competition seasons for athletics teams, large numbers of sequential courses, music ensembles, or serving as collegiate fellows (CFs). If this describes you, or if you are simply interested in a summer experience, take a look at our approved summer programs to see if there's something that will work well for you.

Important financial note. There is no separate summer term at Gustavus, and that means that there is no separate financial aid available. Students who are interested in summer programs and have concerns about how to fund the experience are encouraged to speak with their financial aid counselors in the Financial Aid office. Also note that some scholarships programs shown in our Scholarships pages can be used in the summer.

What are the options?
