Verto Vols

By selecting to participate in Verto Vols through the Road to Rocky Top program, students will have the opportunity to spend their first semester abroad with a UT community before returning and starting classes on UT’s campus for the spring 2022 semester. This unique international academic and co-curricular experience is designed to ensure a seamless transition from the first semester abroad to the spring semester and beyond at UT.

  • Travel overseas with other new Verto Vols during the semester, with the support and safety of the Verto team.
  • Earn 16 college credit hours pre-approved by UT for your degree.
  • Prepare for college and life by meeting regularly with a mentor and faculty to help students achieve their goals.
  • Academic and hands-on experience allows students to decide if a major is right for them.
  • Learn about new cultures and give back to the local community.


In fall 2021, students can choose between three amazing Verto semester locations:

Each program has a wide range of academic interests that allow students to explore and learn before committing to a major at UT in the spring.


Tuition ranges from $15,000 to $20,000 depending on the semester location, which includes room and board and all meals (airfare not included). Verto offers scholarships and financial aid to offset costs. Students can apply federal aid as determined by the FAFSA to the program.
