UWP has announced an academic partnership with Florida Southern College (FSC), which began in July 2012. Academic courses are offered to complement our existing curriculum of experiential learning and educational workshops, making it possible for most UWP participants to earn university credit.

A minimum of 12 academic credits are+ offered each semester and students must opt-in and enroll in the academic program, in addition to being accepted to travel abroad with UWP. This academic program is optional and not required for all students.

All coursework is instructed and assessed by FSC faculty, supported by UWP staff, and delivered through a blended model of classroom instruction and online learning. Transcripts are issued by FSC and are transferable to any accredited university, on approval by the receiving institution.
