When can I study abroad?

You can participate in many programs as soon as the summer or winter break after your freshman year. Programs are available for both undergraduate and graduate students. If you are planning to study aboard for a semester please check with your area of study.

How is credit awarded?

Through the Office of Study Abroad, students remain enrolled at KU and receive resident KU credit. Grades earned while studying abroad are calculated into your KU GPA. You may earn credit toward your major, general education credit, or elective credit. Biology students should work with their academic advisor in conjunction with a study abroad advisor to ensure continued progress toward a degree.

To get started, consult with an advisor at least 4 months before undertaking study abroad. Then consult the Office of Study Abroad, 108 Lippincott Hall, for information about study in one of the many countries with special arrangements with KU.
