Study Abroad

Any student can study abroad at some point during their course of study. Regardless of major, students can spend a semester, full year, or summer term studying in another country. Financial aid is available. Please visit Beth Kagy in the Financial Aid office to find out what aid is available to you.


Please consider the countless benefits of studying abroad. You will encounter new cultures, mature as a person, become more self-reliant and self-assured, and add the experience to your resume. Employers and graduate schools typically look very favorably upon those who have studied abroad.
