Spring Break Programs
For students who have always wanted to Study Abroad at some point in
their college career, but felt that they didn’t have the time or the money,
our Spring Break Programs are often the perfect option. They are also a
great alternative for students who might be prohibited from studying abroad
because of mapping constraints. Taking advantage of the Spring Break
time slot to go abroad can be the perfect solution if personal commitments,
job responsibilities, and/or coursework requirements present the need to
find an alternative to our traditional semester-long programs.
Incorporate on Campus Study with Going Abroad
Spring Break programs incorporate studying on campus during the
spring term with an international experience during the ten-day Break.
This combined semester can be a great alternative to our traditional
semester abroad programs for students who might be prohibited from
being abroad for that longer length of time. Current programs provide
study time in England and Switzerland. However, new opportunities are
continually being developed with different focuses in additional locations.
Registration and Coursework
Students register for a special “IP section” (International Programs section)
of the relevant course that is offered on the Tallahassee Florida State
University Campus. The courses are taught throughout the spring
semester, just as any other courses students might take. In addition to
the regularly scheduled on campus meetings, students participate in a
study abroad experience that enhances the coursework. Our Spring
Break Programs can now provide you with a Study Abroad option that is
focused on one discipline and shorter in duration – therefore being more
affordable than a full semester abroad.
Payments for Spring Break Programs
Students pay one program fee to International Programs that includes
undergraduate credit hours, housing, program related social cultural
excursions, and much more. (Some programs may also include study
abroad opportunities for graduate students.) Students do not pay on-campus
tuition for the course(s) associated with the program because instructional
costs are already included in the program fee.
Financial Assistance Opportunities
As with all of our programs, students can choose from a variety of payment
plans including fee deferment against expected financial aid, Florida
Bright Futures, Florida Pre-Paid, and other available financial aid and
scholarship opportunities. International Programs also offers students
an opportunity to apply for scholarships reserved just for Spring Break
