Short-Term Study Abroad

Short-Term Study Abroad

Living and studying in New York City is a great experience with a non-degree short-term semester program option at Berkeley College. You can earn university credits for each course without having to commit to a degree program. With full-time enrollment of 12 - 15 credits for a semester, you would be eligible for F-1 visa sponsorship.

Credits earned during a semester would allow you to either continue for a degree program at Berkeley College or possibly transfer the credits to your home institution. Ask us about scholarships available for this program.
