Education Abroad


St. Cloud State University has numerous programs for students wishing to earn credit while studying abroad. Education abroad experiences are becoming more important and more popular each year; about 300,000 U.S. students study overseas each year. 

Education abroad experiences offer students life changing personal growth experience coupled with valuable career skill development. International experience and global understanding is a critical component of the 21st century education and workforce, and studying abroad is highly valued by employers. 

The First Year Experience program offers four opportunities to study abroad in your freshman year.

Short Term Programs

Multicultural Student Services has proudly partnered with St. Cloud State Education Abroad to develop programs that introduce students to a wide variety of different cultures and environments throughout the world. 

These two short-term programs — South Africa and Laos/Thailand/Malaysia — were designed to connect black and Southeast Asian students with their ancestral roots and introduce students of other racial and cultural backgrounds to new cultures. These programs remain popular introductions to study abroad for underrepresented students today.
