USAC’s mission is to provide students with the opportunity to develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to succeed in the global society of the twenty-first century. We strive to provide an authentic, quality context in which students may grow into engaged citizens of the world, not only in the classroom but also through fieldtrips, integrated living and academic experiences, sports, internships, and volunteer and service learning opportunities.

Who is USAC?
USAC Central Office and Member University staff work closely with our on-site Resident Directors, Program Coordinators, staff, and faculty to ensure that students receive personalized care and support during your time abroad.

USACs Affiliate Universities
USAC is a non-profit consortium of 33 US universities. The Affiliate Universities serve a governance and strategic role for USAC, such as approving curriculum and issuing transcripts for USAC Specialty programs. Students need not attend an Affiliate University to participate on a USAC program. In fact, students from more than 800 universities worldwide have participated on USAC programs in its 30+ year history.
