Study Abroad

Study Abroad Program Types

  • Faculty-Directed Programs - Faculty directed programs are run and taught by MSU faculty members who lead a group of MSU students abroad. While on a program, students will directly earn MSU credit and pay the same rate in MSU tuition that they do on campus.

  • Semester Partner Programs - Semester partner programs allow an MSU student to apply to and enroll in a foreign university as a student. Students take courses at the university with local and other international students. There are two types of Semester Partner Programs: Exchange and Direct Enroll.

Exchange Program: Students pay MSU tuition and fees just like a semester on campus.

Direct Enroll Program: Students pay host institution tuition and fees.

Note: All Semester Partner Programs require a student to complete a Course Approval Form (CAF) to earn academic credit. Students must submit a copy of the completed CAF, with all required signatures, to the Office for Education Abroad before leaving for a program. Students should save a copy for their records.
