Study Abroad

Study Abroad

Monmouth University encourages students to add an international dimension to their undergraduate education by studying abroad. Qualified students can participate in study abroad either through Monmouth University's Signature semester and summer programs in cities like Buenos Aires, Cádiz, Florence, London, Sorrento, and Strasbourg; through short-term study abroad programs led by Monmouth University faculty; or through any program offered by an approved or accredited U.S. institution of higher education. Students who plan to study abroad in a program other than one sponsored by Monmouth University cannot enroll through another school or consortium when that program is offered through Monmouth University.

Studying abroad at any of Monmouth’s Signature programs or through other approved programs will satisfy the experiential education component of the general education requirements provided that a minimum of six credits are successfully completed.

Students wishing to study abroad must meet the following qualifications:

  1. At least sophomore status.
  2. A minimum GPA of 2.75.
  3. Not on judicial probation.
  4. Not on academic probation.

Students must meet these criteria at the time of application and immediately prior to studying abroad. Failure to do so will result in the student’s removal from the study abroad program.

Monmouth University's Signature Study Abroad Programs

Tuition for the Monmouth study abroad programs is charged at the same rate as on-campus tuition. All merit awards and scholarships apply, except for athletic scholarships and tuition remission. Students attending the Monmouth programs will have all grades listed on their transcript and calculated into their grade point average (G.P.A.). Institutional credit will be granted for all earned grades.

Students considering this opportunity should consult the Global Education Office staff on the first floor of the Rebecca Stafford Student Center or by emailing the Global Education Office with your questions. More information and application instructions for the 2023/24 semester programs can be found on the Monmouth Global Programs website and below:

Non-Monmouth Study Abroad Programs

Students who choose the option of studying abroad under the auspices of other accredited programs must meet the study abroad criteria specified above, complete the Monmouth University study abroad application on the Global Education Office's section of the Portal, and follow the guidelines as provided on the “Study Abroad – non-Monmouth Program” form available from e-FORMS. The e-FORM will be electronically routed for approvals, with an e-mail confirmation when all approvals have been obtained.

Faculty-Led Study Abroad Programs

Monmouth Global Seminars are short-term, faculty-led study abroad programs that foster academic achievement and improve students’ global understanding. These seminars serve a variety of students in disciplines across the university and often fit students’ budgets and busy calendars. Annually more than 100 Monmouth University students venture abroad in this manner.
