SRAS Learning Credits are earned by taking online courses with us – whether a single workshop or a full semester of study. These Learning Credits can be applied to the cost of future SRAS study abroad programs to encourage you to take what you’ve learned online and experience it in-person abroad!
What They Are Worth
These Learning Credits (LC) have a SRAS exchange rate of 1 to 1, so 20 credits = $20 that can be applied to SRAS regular study abroad program* fees. If you select a study abroad program that is 10+ weeks, your Learning Credits receive a 100% boost, so 20 LC = $40.
Another way to boost your Learning Credits is to form a group. Get two friends to join you for an online course and each of you gets a 25% boost to the LCs for that course. So, 20 LC = $25 in this case.
Gift Your Learning Credits
If you know you won’t be joining an SRAS program, but share our belief in the importance of study abroad, you can “gift” your accumulated credits either to a specific individual, university, or into the SRAS Learning Credit Fund, which will initially award $500 scholarships on a competitive, need-based basis for any semester during which the fund holds $500 or more. If you want to “buy” more credits, we will match them 1 for 1 toward this fund.
