Experiences in Europe, Asia, Australia and the Americas are available. International Programs also can help you find study abroad grants and scholarships and options for you to study away at other campuses in the U.S. through the National Student Exchange (NSE).

Students are able to apply financial aid to all academic study abroad programs.

As a study abroad or National Student Exchange participant, you can then add this impressive experience to your resume. Past participants have developed skills that attract employers such as:

  • strong communication skills
  • creative thinking and problem solving
  • adaptability and flexibility
  • initiative and self-reliance

International Programs provides extensive orientation for each program and each student will receive detailed information such as health and safety abroad, passports and visas, participant manuals and more.
