Study Abroad

Participating in the Study Abroad program can be an exciting and life-changing experience. Studying abroad can be done during the summer, or for one semester or two semesters. Whether you know what country you would like to visit or simply want to know the opportunities available to you, visit the International Programs and Services (IPS) website.

Once you have determined that you want to study abroad, start the process by contacting the IPS office. As long as you plan ahead, courses taken abroad can be used to satisfy your degree requirements and should not impact your graduation date. Coordination is required among the IPS staff, your academic advisor, and other departments to determine course offerings and to get them pre-approved to transfer to Michigan Tech.

IPS hosts weekly information sessions, Study Abroad 101. Each session includes an overview of the study abroad options, the study abroad process, and how to work it into your academic plan. The sessions are in the IPS Office, 200 Administration Building, Tuesdays at 11am and Thursdays at 2pm. The application deadline for Summer is March 1, for Fall is April 1, and for Spring is October 15.
