Study Abroad, created through the Office of International Programs, is a program that allows JMU students to gain an international experience by living outside of the United States. They provide a wide range of courses to study in locations throughout the world.
Now you may be asking, how can I participate in the program? Here are three steps to help you on your journey.
Step 1: Attend an information session
Attend a session in order to learn more about the program and to determine if it is right for you. These sessions are held every Tuesday and Wednesday from 4pm to 5pm. For a complete list of dates and locations look here, or you can attend walk-in advising with an international programs advisor.
Step 2: Determine which program is best for you
Study Abroad offers several different program lengths ranging from a full semester to only a few weeks. After attending a session, it is time to figure out which program length is the best for you.
Step 3: Apply!
In order to qualify, you must have an overall GPA of at least 2.0 and be in good standing with the university. You can learn more about applicant qualifiers, view application materials, and find out what happens after acceptance here.
