About Studying Abroad
[Overview] [Eligibility] [Myths & Realities] [Reasons] [Locations]
Eligibility requirements are a minimum of 30 credit
hours and a GPA of 2.5. Studying abroad is especially appropriate in
your sophomore year. This permits you to complete General Education
requirements as well as take courses for your major or minor. Consider
signing up for the interdisciplinary International Studies minor (See
SU catalog). The world is open to International Studies minors who
also study abroad.
Study abroad does not necessarily cost more than attending Shippensburg
University. Students pursuing any major are welcome to apply, and it is
best to begin your planning one year in advance. It truly is the
experience of a lifetime.
