About Program

The Osa Institute is offering one spring and two summer sessions to earn four general education level biology credits in a lab-based course. Not only can you earn transferable college credit, you can do it with ease as the Osa Institute takes care of all logistical aspects of your trip pre-departure. While you are in Costa Rica we offer airport pick-up, meals, 24/7 coordinator assistance, housing, program coordination, and more. The Osa Institute offers safe and meaningful experiences abroad for students and educators looking to take their learning global. Our goal is to help students earn college credit in a meaningful way. We believe learning does not always happen within four walls and that experiential learning is extremely valuable to education and personal growth. The Osa Institute gives students the opportunity to travel and experience different cultures while they are young.

This program is currently not being promoted on Go Overseas by its provider. Check with Study Abroad for Biology Credit for the most up-to-date information regarding the status of this program.
