Study Abroad

All interested students are invited to experience either a short-term study abroad experience (one, two, or three weeks), a summer, a semester or a year abroad at an approved program after applying and discussing their options with the director of global education programs, who should be the first point of contact, and the faculty advisor.

The director of global education programs provides direction for selecting culturally rich and academically sound international experiences, and university approval when selecting Study Abroad sites for the major and/or elective courses in all disciplines. Students should visit the Office of Global Education Programs online at for more information.

Enrollment in a program of study abroad approved for credit by GCU may be considered enrollment at GCU for the purpose of applying for assistance under Title IV, HEA programs. Students may use State of New Jersey forms of financial aid for some study abroad programs.
