Education Abroad

Family Resources

Studying abroad can be a complicated process for students and without the support and assistance from a student's support circles, it can cause the process to be more stressful. All the information below will help assist in increasing your knowledge to best support your student who is going abroad.

Student Privacy Considerations:

The St. Cloud State Education Abroad Office must abide by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). This means that we cannot divulge student academic, financial, enrollment, or non-emergency medical information to parents without the student's consent. Whenever possible, we encourage you to shift questions for all aspects of their education abroad program to your student. Find out more information about student educational privacy rights at St. Cloud State University.
