You can earn three or four HACC credits in as little as one to three weeks of travel time while participating in a short-term, faculty-led travel course. Information about the 2017 short-term, faculty-led travel courses can be found here. Students can apply for participation in these courses immediately. Travel courses will close without notice once capacity is reached.
Where can you go?
Asia, Europe, North America or South America!
Who teaches HACC's travel courses?
Experienced HACC faculty lead and teach the travel courses.
When do the travel courses actually travel?
The Center for Global Education schedules travel to take place in January before "regular" spring term classes begin, over mid-term break in March but with the majority of the courses traveling after finals in May. Keep in mind there will be pre- and post-travel classes to attend in addition to the travel portion of the programs.

- Although HACC short-term, faculty-led travel courses are designated as spring or summer term, students must have applied for participation, been accepted by the program's faculty leader and are enrolled in the course as early as October, 2016 (for the Guatemala program) through January/February, 2017 to meet our providers' deadlines. End registration dates will vary by program.
- HACC travel courses are subject to close without notice once capacity is reached.
- Enrollment into any of the HACC travel courses is controlled by the Center for Global Education. Only upon acceptance into the course AND completion of all enrollment documents, including payment of a $300 non-refundable deposit, will enrollment in the course take place. Students will be notified via email when the enrollment process is complete.
- Payment in full of the program fee (less the $300 deposit) is due 45 days prior to the program's departure date. The payment plan offered through Student Accounts for "regular" HACC classes DOES NOT APPLY TO TRAVEL COURSES. View the balance due date for each of the HACC travel courses.
