About the program

Indiana University’s Bologna Consortial Studies Program (BCSP) offers qualified undergraduate students an opportunity to study for a full Academic Year, Fall or Spring semester at the University of Bologna for U.S. college credit.

Eligible students from any US institution can be considered as applicants.

The BCSP was founded by Indiana University in 1965 and is now a consortium of fifteen institutions that jointly set the program’s academic standards. Indiana University’s Office of Overseas Study is responsible for administering the program on behalf of the consortium members.
