Outgoing collage

Where can a Southern student study abroad?

Just about anywhere, really.

OPTION 1) Students can participate in one of Southern's reciprocal exchange programs: 


SCSU has 30 strategically developed partnerships with distinguished institutions all over the world. Please visit us in the OIE to discuss what options might be available to you considering your academic interests and regional preferences!

OPTION 2)  Students can participate in an SCSU Faculty-Led, credit-bearing program 

Spend a Summer, Winter Recess or Spring Recess abroad! Information about our current programs, including brochures and applications, can be found here. Programs typically last 2-4 weeks and award up to 6 credits.  This is a very popular study abroad option!

OPTION 3)  Students may participate in a program through an approved study abroad provider at an approved university abroad. 

If none our options interest you, it's always possible to study abroad through an approved third-party study abroad program or organization. Students who wish to explore this option must make an appointment with an OIE coordinator to discuss the process of applying to or attending such a program.

Southern is proud to have joined the Institute of International Education's "Generation Study Abroad" campaign! By 2020, Southern pledges to at least double its study abroad participation.  The University's pathway to achieving this goal will be manifold, including providing resources and support to aid in the integration of more study, research, and service-learning opportunities into the curriculum; providing access to information about study abroad during the first semester of our students' freshman year; and working with students to identify scholarships that could provide financial assistance toward their experience abroad.
