Summer Program Information

Gustavus students may participate on any summer program they choose. You do NOT need to fill out a Gustavus application, nor do you need to complete any paperwork specifically for us, the Center for International and Cultural Education. We are able to provide only very general study abroad and program advising for you. Please see us with questions that are beyond credit and about studying abroad.

You will need to work directly with the Gustavus Registrar’s Office regarding credit transfer. If you are hoping to fufill major or minor course requirements, you will also need to discuss your plans and obtain course approvals from the relevant academic department. We suggest that you bring pertinent course information (course descriptions, syllabi, program information, etc.) to the Registrar’s office / your academic departments when inquiring about credit transfer. This will help them to assess the program and what credit may be granted.

You will need to work directly with the program provider for all program specific issues and questions. You will pay the program provider directly all fees due to them.

Summer programs do not appear in our approved program list, available on StudioAbroad. Our office (CICE) does not officially oversee summer programs and is not involved in any official way with Gustavus students participating on summer programs.

The following CICE semester program partners also offer excellent summer programs. These are partners/providers that Gustavus has worked with for many years and for whom we can vouch. These organizations have stellar reputations in the international education field, and are known for their professionalism, academic integrity and ability to manage risk and emergencies:
