Affiliate Universities

USAC is a nonprofit consortium of U.S. universities, which provides oversight, support and strategic planning to USAC and its programs. These universities approve curriculum and issue transcripts for USAC Specialty Programs.

Host Universities

USAC programs are based at a host university abroad. Specialty Programs are conducted on a host university campus where we maintain office and classroom space; however classes are taught by USAC faculty and taken with other USAC students. Partnership Programs are run by the international programs office and staff at the foreign university, where students take classes with locals.
