Short-Term Academic Study Away Programs (STASAP) are offered during the winter break or in the summer session. Some courses may have components that will be fulfilled at your home campus or online. These programs differ from the district's existing semester long study abroad programs in that they are shorter in duration and you do not have to be a full-time student.
A short-term study away program may be right for you! Students and faculty alike find these programs to be both transformative and richly rewarding.
Please check back for information about upcoming study away programs. DVC temporarily suspended study away during the 2020-2022 period, but plans for new programs are underway!
The Puebla, Mexico program has been postponed. Please check back in fall 2022 for updates.
Students in DVC's first Study Away program visited Machu Pichu and other locations in Peru, in the summer 2019 term.
