The educational experience of a lifetime.

Trevecca Nazarene University is one of 113 members in the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU) offering study abroad programs. Students benefit directly from Trevecca's involvement in the CCCU through a variety of  Culture-Shaping Programs that extend across the globe. Working with Best Semester (through CCCU), students are able to have the educational experience of a lifetime.

Application Process and Credit Information

Trevecca generally assigns credit as recommended by the individual programs. Some offer specific course credits; others offer variable credits. While Trevecca works with other institutions in the offering of these credits, matters related to approval, acceptance of coursework, the assignment of grades, and course titles and descriptions are determined by Trevecca personnel and must be in compliance with Trevecca's policies and procedures.

Application materials and information on these programs can be secured from the Center for Leadership, Calling and Service. Completion of Trevecca application materials should be prerequisite to processing the online application available on the BestSemester Web site. Because of the nature of these programs, students are advised to work with the financial aid office to determine whether or not aid is available to them for a particular programs.
