Study Abroad

Study Abroad Programs enable you to attend a university in another country for one semester and, for some programs, an entire academic year.

In most cases, SDSU has a cooperative agreement with the university abroad ensuring that the classes you take are transferable to your SDSU permanent academic record. You maintain enrollment status at SDSU while attending a college outside the United States.

Most of the programs require that you pay SDSU full-time basic tuition and fees for each semester abroad.
