All students who intend to study abroad, whether on programs sponsored by UR, or on other institutions' programs, need to first request approval from UR to study abroad. This request must be submitted no later than September 15 for Spring programs, or February 15 for fall or full-year programs.
Students can request approval by starting an application for each program through the UR Study Abroad Portal.
Once I submit my request, what's next?
Once students have started a request for UR approval to study abroad, they should begin their specific program's application. See instructions in the UR Study Abroad Portal
Can I go for more than one semester?
Students may study 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 study 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 a study abroad adviser.
- Students who have a grade point average of 2.80 or better are eligible to apply for UR-sponsored programs. If you have questions about your eligibility, please speak with a study abroad adviser.
