How it Works

  1. Browse program options and meet with a study abroad advisor.
  2. Start the SPU application by clicking "Apply Now" on the program brochure. Follow instructions in the application.
  3. Once approved, you will apply to the individual program you've chosen. The program will notify you of your acceptance.
  4. You will be billed through SPU on the regular billing cycle of the term you'll be studying away.

Additional Information

  • Participants are billed SPU charges for their study abroad program, not the fees advertised in third party brochures or websites. Program fees are determined by considering the amenities included in the program, the overall cost of those amenities, the cost of living in the host country, and the overall cost of the program to the university.
  • Please note that in many cases, programs only include tuition expenses. Therefore, any other expenses related to participation in the program (housing, meals, orientation activities, excursions, etc.) are the responsibility of the student and will be paid directly to the host organization.
  • Students will earn transfer credit (except for Best Semester Programs which award SPU credit) upon completion of their program.
