Interested in spending your summer, taking courses overseas? You may be able to receive Haverford credit for the work you do, while abroad!
In order to receive credit, students must submit the summer study abroad form to the Registrar’s Office in advance of attending the program. Students may not apply for retroactive credit for programs already completed.
Summer study abroad is not under the oversight of Haverford’s International Academic Programs (Study Abroad). To best understand your options, please consult your dean prior to leaving campus for the summer. The procedures and regulations are available in the course catalog.
Students have received credit from many programs on the following list. Keep in mind that this is by no means an exhaustive catalog; you should feel free to apply for credit from a program you do not see here, or attend a program for no academic credit.
GoAbroad.com is a good resource for learning about potential summer study options.
