Online Courses & Study Abroad

Students studying abroad are able to complete online courses while abroad but it is not recommended by UConn Education Abroad. Remember that you are studying abroad to immerse yourself in a new culture and to challenge yourself academically while abroad; taking courses online can take away from this experience. Also, remember that access to high speed internet will vary greatly across the globe. You cannot assume that your living area abroad will have reliable internet access.

If you still decide to take an online course while abroad, you will be charged for the course you are taking during the same semester. The charges are in addition to your study abroad program charges.  The following information will help you determine what charges you will be responsible for.
