Overview

By participating in a Faculty-Led Study Abroad (FLSA) program, you will be enrolled in and taking credits directly from Embry-Riddle. These opportunities are a great way to meet and interact with faculty in a new and interesting environment. They also make for a fun way to network with ERAU students from Prescott, Daytona Beach, and Worldwide campuses when you participate in the same program.

FSLA 2020 Programs:

  • Programs last between 2-6 weeks and typically offer up to six credit hours
  • Participate in either Prescott or Daytona Beach programs
  • Financial aid may be available. Contact the Financial Aid Office for details
  • Courses taught in English by ERAU faculty or by local faculty credentialed by ERAU
  • Many programs include three-day weekends for independent travel
  • Field trips are included in all programs

There are two main types of FLSA programs currently available to students:

Summer Programs:

A duration of 4-6 weeks during the summer. Some programs are specifically tailored toward a certain degree program, while others encompass all majors. The entirety of the program takes place abroad. Registration for the class will occur in March or April and will require a signed drop add form. On line registration for FLSA programs is not an option.

Semester Programs:

These are on campus, semester-long courses with required travel during winter or summer break. Travel duration is approximately 2 to 3 weeks and is a required course component. Registration for these class occurs during the normal course registration period in November or March and will be done with a drop add form. On line registration for these classes is not an option. 

Requirements

  • At least sophomore standing (exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis).
  • At least a 2.5 cumulative grade-point average (CGPA), in most cases. Some programs will require a higher GPA.
