University Information

With thousands of study abroad programs, it can seem overwhelming to narrow down program choices. The Study Abroad Office can help guide students to programs based on the following factors:

Academics: Remember - studying abroad includes studying. Going abroad on a program that does not offer courses that will help a student progress to graduation would be the same as taking a semester off, but still paying for classes. Students should consider academics as their first priority when looking for a study abroad program.

Finances: Studying abroad does not have to be expensive. There are several program options that make studying abroad similar in cost to studying at CSUF. When considering the cost of a program, students need to consider the transferability of financial aid and the availability of scholarships.

Personal Guidance: Each student will have their own reasons for going abroad. Perhaps it is because they have always wanted to go to France, or they want to study how Chinese companies do business. Depending on their reasons for going abroad, there are programs to match.

The Study Abroad Office will not tell a student which program to apply for, it is a personal choice and the decision needs to come from the student. However, regardless of which program a student chooses, the Study Abroad Office can help. Students should always contact the office if they are stuck or need help with programs or paperwork.

Regardless of which program a student decides to go on, the Study Abroad Office is a resource. Students can always come to the office if they are stuck or need help with programs or paperwork.
