About Penn Summer Abroad
Penn Summer Abroad programs are faculty-led and offer undergraduate courses that are taught abroad during the summer for Penn credit. The one exception is the Penn-in-Seoul course taught by Seoul National University faculty, which is treated as transfer credit. The programs are sponsored by departments in the School of Arts and Sciences and administered by Penn's College of Liberal and Professional Studies (LPS). Participants include students from all the undergraduate schools at Penn. Most of the programs also welcome students from other universities.
Summer transfer credit for a non-Penn program
Penn undergraduates wishing to receive credit for participating in a non-Penn program during the summer must obtain prior approval from the relevant department and apply for credit away using the External Course Approval Tool (XCAT). Students in the Penn-in-Seoul program must also apply for credit away.
