Education Abroad

SU Sponsored

The new Education Abroad Sponsored Program Model offers a menu of more than 100 sponsored semester-long and academic year programs. SU institutional scholarships, grants, and full state and federal aid can be applied to these programs.  

The Program Finder lists all SU-Sponsored & Exchange Program Finder by course disciplines offered. When using this, be aware that some program may only offer one or many courses in that discipline. Students must work with their Academic Advisor and Education Abroad Advisor to determine whether a given program will satisfy degree requirements. Program Fees listed are based on 2016-2017 rates and are subject to change.

How It Works

  • Apply to the program through EAO (link below) by February 1 of the year prior to studying abroad (ex. To study abroad in Fall 2017, Winter 2018, and/or Spring 2018 an application must be submitted by February 1, 2017). *Studying abroad for one academic is not guarenteed when applying for SU Sponsored programs*
  • Once approved by the Education Abroad Office, students apply to the program sponsor (an application fee may be charged).
  • Complete required SU paperwork and attend pre-departure orientation.
  • Complete required program sponsor paperwork and apply for a visa, if applicable.
  • Students are charged one quarter of SU tuition for participation during fall quarter and/or winter/spring quarters combined. A program fee (up to $12,000) may be charged in addition to SU tuition. See the Program Model to determine whether a selected program will have an additional fee. In many cases, SU tuition and program fees will exceed affiliate charges. The cost difference is attributed to additional expenses incurred by SU for risk management, academic assessment/accreditation, on-campus student support services, access to SU institutional aid, affiliate sponsor membership fees, and other overhead expenses. 
  • Eligible coursework applies toward the SU degree as transfer credits.


For each semester or quarter abroad, students pay one quarter of SU tuition and applicable program fees. Even when abroad, SU students are responsible to pay SU technology fees. Students receive a budget for their selected program which includes these costs as well as estimated additional costs. Students are responsible for full payment of tuition and program costs once the acceptance agreement is signed. SU pays the program provider for the cost of the program. Some programs include housing while others do not. Consult the Program Model to determine this. If housing is not included, students will pay the program sponsor directly for it. Students are responsbile to pay for additional expenses such as lab fees, voluntary excursions, housing upgrades, etc.

Should a student withdraw acceptance for any reason after the agreement is signed, that student is responsible for all unrecoverable costs which SU has incurred on the student's behalf. Contact the Education Abroad office for more information.
