ACADEMIC YEAR/SEMESTER PROGRAMS ABROAD
Academic year/semester programs administered by the University at Albany offer opportunities in a wide variety of disciplines. Undergraduates normally register for 15–18 credits during the semester or 30–36 credits during the academic year. For most of these programs, students may participate for one semester or a full academic year.

Other four-year State University of New York campuses offer additional programs for which Albany students are eligible. See http://www.sunysystemabroad.com/. Students participating in one of these programs register on the Albany campus, which permits them to maintain eligibility for financial aid.
Students participating in two-year community college, contract college, or non-SUNY programs during the academic year request a leave for approved study from the Albany campus for the duration of the program.
