Global Engagement Office: Education Abroad

Get Started

The Education Abroad staff within the Global Engagement Office can assist you as you start mapping your journey for an exciting and challenging international education experience.

Steps to Study Abroad

We encourage all students to attend an EA 101 session as they begin to consider education abroad. These sessions cover important considerations including the benefits of education abroad, available programs, and the step-by-step process.

How to Apply

You must be in good academic standing and disciplinary standing at UCCS in order to study abroad. Also, you must meet the eligibility requirements of the program. You may not study abroad during your first semester at UCCS.

Program Types

UCCS offers students interested in studying abroad four different types of programs: exchanges, direct enrollment (program partners), third party, and faculty-directed.

Diversity Abroad

The Global Engagement Office is dedicated to supporting diversity and non-discrimination in Education Abroad for all UCCS students. Every UCCS student is encouraged to explore opportunities for an overseas educational experience.
