When Can Students Study Abroad?
At Saint Anselm College the most common time for students to study abroad is during the fall or spring semester during their junior year. Because of changes to Saint Anselm College's core curriculum, sophomores can now study abroad during their spring semester. Also, students are encouraged to consider summer study as well as studying abroad for the entire academic year.
Students are required to submit an initial online application form and answer a question regarding their goals for their semester abroad. Students are also required to complete a number of Enrollment Forms by the deadline outlined in their acceptance letter. Enrollment Forms include the following: Program Acceptance Letter, Course Approval Form with course descriptions and department chair signatures, Passport Copy, Waiver of Liability & Release, Communication Authorization Form and a copy of your Program Acceptance Letter. These forms are all available on the Study Abroad Application Portal.
