• How To Get Started...

    • Attend a "First Step Meeting" to learn about the study abroad opportunities available for Monmouth students. These meetings are held during the few weeks of each semester, and everyone is welcome to attend. If you decide that you want to go abroad the following semester, you will be advised to download the Information Packet that pertains to your country/program of interest. These packets also include the application and course offerings.
    • Read the Student Stories for study abroad news that comes straight from your peers. Find out what they say about their experience, where they traveled, how much they spent, and how study abroad has impacted their life.
    • Check your Monmouth e-mail often for study abroad-related information including "First Step Meeting" times and locations.
    • Read the "Study Abroad Page" in the The Outlook. Most weeks we feature stories from those who are currently studying abroad and from those who have returned. These features give you a unique student perspective and valuable insights.
    • Visit the Study Abroad Office to look through the growing photo album of past participants and variety of locales.
    • Peruse our growing "Memory Book" with student memorabilia, photos, essays, stories, and testimonials.
    • Get answers to all your questions and guidance on who to contact for specific issues.
    • Read FAQs for Students for additional information.

    TIPS

    • Plan ahead. The sooner you know where and when you want to go, the better. Since course offerings abroad are usually fewer than on campus, you may want to learn about the types of courses you can take while abroad. If you have a few elective or general education courses remaining to take, it generally makes it easier to put together a schedule.
    • Keep up your grade point average (GPA). You need a minimum GPA of 2.75 to apply.
    • Begin a study abroad savings account for extra money. Most students travel extensively within the host city as well as to many other nearby cities and countries. If you begin saving in advance, you will have less stress finding spending money, and you will be able to see more while abroad.
