Other Approved Programs

We partner with a number of approved study abroad providers in order to offer an exceptionally wide range of options – there is truly an opportunity for every major. 

Other approved programs have been thoroughly reviewed by the University to ensure academic rigor, excellent onsite support, and high standards for health and safety. 

These programs provide options in over 40 countries and offer a variety of program models. Many include research and internship opportunities.

How to Apply

First: Attend a First Step Session 

Even if you have some ideas about where, when and what you would like to study abroad, we strongly encourage you to meet with the peer advisors in the Study Abroad Office for an overview of study abroad options and some initial considerations. Peer advisors have all studied abroad for at least one semester and are a great resource for questions about what it’s like to study abroad.

None of these dates listed work? Click here to watch the Session online. Peer advisors are also available to chat at other times. Call the Office of Study Abroad at 651.962.6450, or stop by between 8:00 a.m.- 4:30 p.m. Monday – Friday, for information. 

Second: Complete an Advising Profile

If you are interested in applying for a program through one of our approved program organizations for a semester, summer or academic year, start here by thinking about some advising questions. The Advising Questionnaire asks about your interests, as well as topics you wish to discuss, to help make the most of your meeting with an advisor.

Third: Meet with an Advisor 

During your advising appointment, a Study Abroad Advisor will review any questions you have, talk about program selection, getting courses approved, and the application process. Meeting with an advisor is required in order to apply to a semester, year-long or summer program through one of our other approved programs. 

Schedule a semester, summer, or academic year advising appointment by calling the Office of Study Abroad at 651-962-6450.
