See yourself. See who you'll become.

Our headquarters are located right here on campus, but students from any university are welcome to participate on USAC programs. That means not only will you make friends and connections in your host country, but you can also engage and network with peers from all over the United States while you explore another country and culture together. And because we are your study abroad office, University of Nevada, Reno students like you have access to special resources to help you plan your study abroad experience.

NEW! UNR Student Discounts

All UNR students, regardless of where you apply, will now receive a $385 discount on USAC programs!

In addition, if you apply for a Specialty Program location for a semester, yearlong, or both summer sessions, you'll receive an additional $415 discount, for a total discount of $800.

Please note: The additional $415 excludes all Partnership Programs, as well as Specialty Programs that are shorter in length (attending only one summer session or wintermester program). Students must be enrolled at UNR to receive the discount, and must select it as their home university.

Where will you go?

For 40 years, USAC study abroad has been the gateway to the world for more than 60,000 students. In 45 locations across 27 countries, students can participate in an affordable, authentic, immersive, and life-changing experience abroad.

"Being the young girl dreaming of it, achieving it, and then making it my career, helping other students have the same experience," Alyssa Nota, USAC CEO/President said.
