All students who intend to go abroad, whether on UR Programs, or on other institutions' programs, need to first request approval from UR to go abroad. This request must be submitted no later than October 15 for spring programs, or March 15 for fall or full-year programs.
Students can request approval by starting an application for each program through the Education Abroad Portal.
Once I submit my request, what's next?
Once students have started a request for UR approval to go abroad, they should begin their specific program's application. See instructions in the Education Abroad Portal.
Can I go abroad for more than one semester?
Students may go abroad for a total of two semesters. The semesters do not need to be concurrent. There is no limit on the number of summers you can go abroad. Applying for summer education abroad is the same process as for a semester during the academic year.
Please note the following:
- Juniors and first-semester seniors are eligible to go abroad during the regular academic year. There are also many programs open to sophomores. If you have questions about eligibility, please see an education abroad advisor.
- Students who have a grade point average of 2.75 or higher are eligible to apply for UR Programs. If you have questions about your eligibility, please speak with an education abroad advisor.
