Inside Scoop
Road scholars

UIndy follows a traditional academic calendar, but three-week Spring Term classes are offered each May. Spring Term offerings vary each year and are open to all students, regardless of major. Many students decide on an international travel course led by UIndy faculty instead taking one of the on-campus options. This year’s travel courses include trips to France, Ghana, Germany, and Costa Rica, among others. And to reduce costs, UIndy waives first-time tuition fees for full-time students.
