Center for International Programs - Semester/Year Abroad

Program Information

All SJU students should read and understand the SJU Study Abroad Policy before applying to any approved program, listed below. Please be advised that policies regarding semester and academic year abroad differ from those regarding a summer abroad. If you are interested in taking a class overseas during the summer, please review the SJU Summer Abroad Policy.

SJU students studying at these universities are required to have transfer of credit pre-approved by the appropriate Academic Associate Dean and/or Department Chair (see the Accepted Students page for more information about obtaining course approvals). SJU students studying abroad on an Approved Program pay SJU tuition which CIP forwards to these institutions. All financial aid is applied to the student's account as if he/she were studying at SJU. In most cases, students pay housing and other program fees directly to the program provider listed below. Click on the program name below for more detailed information.

Non-Approved / Petition Programs
If a student wishes to apply to a study abroad program that is not currently on this Approved or Affiliated Program List, they should carefully read the Study Abroad Policy for more information on petitioning to attend Non-Approved/Affiliated Programs. Students should also make an appointment to meet with the Study Abroad Advisor to discuss the petition process. The absolute deadline for filing petitions for study abroad during the spring semester is October 1 of the preceding semester, and for fall semester the deadline is March 1 of the preceding semester.

If the student's petition is approved, the student's study abroad program will be administered by Saint Joseph's University in the same way as all other study abroad programs and the student must pay Saint Joseph's tuition. All forms of financial aid are applicable if the petition is approved.
