Study Abroad

Salve Regina encourages students to study abroad for a semester or year in preparation for working and living in an interdependent world. Most students find that foreign study enhances their education immensely. In addition, employers and graduate schools often look for people who have skills sharpened by study abroad, such as independence, flexibility and broad-mindedness.

The Office of International Programs provides advising and assistance to Salve Regina students who wish to study abroad. In addition to administering short-term programs led by Salve Regina faculty, we support study abroad through affiliate programs providers and partner universities, as well as exchange programs.

When Can I Study Abroad?

To apply for semester or yearlong programs, students are required to:

  • Have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.70
  • Have completed their sophomore year, have junior standing and have declared a major
  • Meet requirements prescribed by the faculty and implemented by the Office of International Programs

Academic prerequisites and standards may vary for individual universities abroad.

Students who cannot spend a semester or year abroad can take advantage of several short-term study abroad opportunities offered during the summer break, the January intersession and spring break. Short-term study abroad programs are open to all students regardless of class standing.
