Short-Term and Summer Programs Abroad

dream. discover. explore. learn. connect. go.

Studying abroad on a short-term program is a great option for those who want the experience of studying overseas but are unable to go for a semester or year.

These MSU short-term study abroad programs are open to MSU students, non-MSU students, and community members who receive approval to travel on these programs. Students may use financial aid to pay for short-term study abroad programs, but only when registering for a minimum of 6 credits. Students considering financial aid should contact the Financial Aid Office immediately. See the specific program below to determine application deadlines.
