Global Thinking


Overview

Regis University encourages students to think through a global perspective. Regis Study Abroad programs give our students the opportunity to travel across the world and experience cultures, landscapes, and lifestyles that will forever change the way they think. Be part of something bigger and begin your study abroad experience through one of our programs.

Why study abroad?

We encourage students to think of the semester as an opportunity to help them pursue their academic, intellectual, and professional goals. Here is what Regis University students have to say about study abroad: 

“I’m not sure you are truly educated until you have studied abroad. If nothing else, make this your priority in college. It will change you in ways you can’t imagine.” – Costa Rica, Spring 2016 

“Studying abroad, without a doubt, has been the best decision of not only my college career but probably of my entire life. I've learned to be more confident in who I am, that life doesn't always require the hustle and bustle that we're used to, and that there's so much more to life than what's at home or in the classroom.” – Spain, Spring 2016  

“I believe that studying abroad changed me into the type of person I want to be and want people to know, which is something you can't learn in the classroom.” –Austria, Spring 2016 

“Study abroad has by far been the best and most meaningful part of my college experience.” –Costa Rica, Spring 2016 

“It is difficult to put into words just how amazing it was, but it was truly a life changing experience. Not only did I learn about and get to experience another culture, but I learned so much about myself. Studying abroad, as cheesy as it sounds, really helped me rediscover me while also giving me a new outlook on things, in a positive way.” –Spain, Spring 2016

Student Info

When should I start planning for my study abroad semester? 

  • Regis University Study Abroad applications are due roughly a year in advance of the intended semester abroad, so begin researching your options as soon as possible. You don’t need to decide on your final program choice before opening an application. You can choose any program to open an application and change your mind about your program selections later. It’s best to open an application as soon as possible!
  • Applications to study abroad in Fall 2018 and Spring 2019 are available now, and their submission deadline is Dec. 1, 2017. Apply here
  • The regular deadline for Nursing Students is March 15, 2018. (Provided these applicants submit an Intent to Study Abroad Form to the Study Abroad Office by Dec. 2, 2016.)
When can I study abroad? 
  • Regis College Study Abroad is primarily for students in their junior year.
  • Pre-nursing students may go abroad during the spring semester of their sophomore year.
  • Regis University does not offer a summer study abroad option. See the Regis College Travel Learning programs for summer courses abroad.

What are the requirements to study abroad? 

  • To participate in study abroad at Regis University, students must possess a minimum GPA of 3.0 at the time of the study abroad application deadline and maintain a cumulative 3.0 GPA through the midterm period of the semester prior to the study abroad semester. Students whose GPAs drop below a 3.0 between the application deadline and the intended semester abroad may be considered no longer eligible for participation in the study abroad program. 
  • Students must be in academic, financial, and disciplinary good standing at Regis University (i.e. no academic warnings or probation, financial accounts in good standing, and no habitual disciplinary items or currently subject of a disciplinary process).
  • Any student who wishes to participate in the Regis University Study Abroad program must enroll in the mandatory 1-credit Global Education Seminar course (RCC 440A: Critical Perspectives on Culture) the semester prior to studying abroad, as well as the post-program 1-credit course (RCC 440B: Developing Intercultural Perspectives).
  • Students who participate in at least one semester of Study Abroad and complete both of these courses may fulfill the RCC 400D integrative core requirement. Students for whom enrolling in the above course will result in an overload may enroll in the course for zero credits. For questions about this course, contact Dr. Naomi Olson at nolson@regis.edu.

How long can students study abroad? 

  • Most Regis students study abroad for a semester, but students may study abroad for up to two consecutive semesters on the same program. Students may not study abroad on two different programs.

Where can I study abroad?

Regis students may study abroad through any program listed on the regis.edu/studyabroad website or any program offered through the travelapplication.regis.edu site. Study Abroad Advisors will work with you to find options among the 100 programs we offer that will fit your academic needs and your budget.

How does the application process work? 

  • Study Abroad is a two-step process. First, you must submit an application to the Regis Study Abroad Selection Committee. Once you are accepted by Regis, you must apply directly to the program abroad for which you have been approved by the Regis Selection Committee. You must be accepted both by Regis and your specific study abroad program or university abroad. You may not submit an application to your specific study abroad program university until you have been approved by Regis.
  • Not sure what program will be your first choice? Don’t worry; you don’t need to wait until you’ve made a final decision. You can start an application through any program and change your mind later. The first question on the application asks you to rank your top choice programs, and you can edit this at any time. No matter what program you use to open an application, we will go by what you say in your essay.
Is the application difficult? 
  • No, but finding the appropriate program and choosing courses abroad requires a good amount of research and thought. The application consists of the following:
    • A few paragraphs explaining why you’re a good fit for study abroad, and why the program you’re interested in is a good academic fit for you. 
    • A budget planning worksheet. 
    • A course planning worksheet, signed by your advisor, that lists the courses you intend to take on your program abroad.*
    • A recommendation from a faculty member who knows you well.*

*These components require the most amount of time, so start them as soon as possible!

How can I find the perfect program for me?

  • After attending an info session, email oge@regis.edu to make an appointment with a Study Abroad Advisor for a personalized advising session.
  • Search programs based on area of academic study, geographical location, language of instruction, and/or price, here.
  • When you’re considering different programs, make sure that you meet the specific program’s GPA, language, and class standing requirements, and that the program dates will work for your schedule.  
  • Make an appointment with a Study Abroad Advisor for a personalized advising session.

What are my chances of being accepted to study abroad on the program of my choice? 

  • Regis is limited to sending up to three students from Regis to any particular program abroad. Therefore, we ask you to rank up to three programs for which you would like to be considered. Placement decisions will be based on curricular fit. Therefore, it is important that you can articulate the reasons why your first, second, and third-choice programs are a good fit for your academic, intellectual, and professional goals.
  • If you do not meet all of the requirements (GPA minimum, disciplinary record, etc.) we invite you to address these concerns on your application. The Selection Committee makes decisions holistically, so your application may be considered even if you do not meet all of the requirements.

What can I do to increase my chances of acceptance to the program of my choice? 

  • Apply to study abroad during the fall semester! For many Regis students, studying abroad in the spring semester is the only available option due to rigid sequencing in major requirements. If your major does not require you to study abroad in the spring, apply to study abroad in the fall, and you will be more likely to be approved for your top-choice program. Fall study abroad is also a good option because it allows you to complete the visa and passport application process during the summer instead of during the final exam period of your fall semester. 
  • Students will be approved for programs for which they can demonstrate a good academic fit. Focus on how the program of your choice will help you achieve your academic goals, and you’ll be more likely to be approved for your top-choice program.

How do I get started?  

  • Begin by speaking with your intended major advisor to determine a) which semester you should go abroad and b) what type of courses (electives, core requirements, etc.) you should plan to reserve for your semester abroad. See the Academics tab for more info.
  • Don't wait to open an application! Even if you’re not sure what your top choice program is yet, you can open an application through any program now and change your mind later. The first question on the application asks you to rank your top choice programs, and you can edit this at any time. No matter what program you use to open an application, we will go by what you say in your essay.

Academics

In order to plan for a successful semester abroad, it helps to have an idea of what your major will be. You’ll need to find a program that offers courses that will work for your intended major. Click here to search for programs by area of academic study. 

How can I find courses on a Study Abroad Program that will work for me?

STEP 1: Discuss with your intended major advisor (or your academic advisor if undecided) early on:

  • WHEN is the best time for me to go abroad? Which semester? (Fall offers better program selection)
  • WHAT types of courses, in general, should I plan to take abroad? (Electives? Core? Major/Minor?)
  • NOTE that all study abroad participants must take the mandatory one-credit Global Education Seminar (RCC 440A: Critical Perspectives on Culture) the semester prior to studying abroad, as well as the one-credit post-program course (RCC 440B: Developing Intercultural Perspectives) the semester after going abroad. The sequence of both RCC440 courses plus a semester abroad on a Regis-sponsored program will fulfill your RCC 400 Diversity and Cultural Tradition integrative core requirement.

STEP 2: Research the courses available at different programs that interest you. Consider:

  • Will I have the PREREQUISITES for this course by the time I go abroad?
  • Will I have the required LANGUAGE proficiency to take these courses by the time I go abroad?
  • Will I have the GPA and CLASS STANDING required by this program by the time I go abroad?

STEP 3: As you research courses available abroad, make sure you fully understand the Regis requirements:

  • Students must take the equivalent of at least 12 Regis credits per semester while studying abroad.
  • Students may not enroll in online courses at Regis during the same semester in which they intend to study abroad.*
  • Find descriptions of what it takes to satisfy Regis College core courses, see here.
  • RC INTEGRATIVE core courses must be advanced, discussion-based and fit descriptions on the above site.
* Students who wish to enroll in online courses at Regis during the same semester in which they study abroad may do so only if the online course dates do not overlap with the study abroad program. Students who enroll in online courses at Regis during the study abroad semester will be charged at the per-credit-hour basis for the online course: http://www.regis.edu/College-Admissions-and-Financial-Aid/College-Financial-Aid/Cost-of-Attendance.aspx

STEP 4: Identify five to six courses that you could potentially take on at least two different programs.

To verify that a course abroad will satisfy a Regis requirement, gather as much information as possible about the course (course description is essential; a syllabus is even better) and bring it to the appropriate faculty member for approval, which you should obtain in writing and retain for your records.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How do I know if this course will satisfy a requirement for my intended major or minor?

  • Ask your major/minor advisor or a faculty member from the department of your intended major or minor to approve the course. Provide the faculty member with a full description (Course description is essential; syllabus is even better) of the course abroad.

How do I know if this course will satisfy a requirement for the distributive or integrative core?

  • Compare the descriptions of courses abroad with the descriptions of the Regis requirements (Step 3 above). Once you think you’ve found potential matches for the core, ask staff in the Dean’s Office for approval. Provide a full course description and/or syllabi for each course. 

Note: You may fulfill up to two integrative core requirements through the study abroad experience (RCC400 Diversity and an additional course abroad). Exception: Students participating in Regis in Ireland may fulfill up to three integrative core requirements.

Will this course help me satisfy the language requirement?

  • To satisfy the Foreign Language requirement, you must take two consecutive semesters of a foreign language. (In other words, you can’t satisfy the requirement by taking two courses of a foreign language within the same semester). If a language isn’t offered here at Regis (Russian, for instance), you would have to take a semester of that language through another university either before or after your semester abroad to fulfill the requirement.

Will courses abroad affect my GPA?

  • No. Grades earned while studying abroad are not factored into the Regis GPA. Transfer credit will be awarded for all appropriate courses completed through any of the approved Study Abroad programs listed on this website. Courses abroad must be passed with the grade of C or better in order to receive credit, and Regis University will follow the recommended grade scale provided by the host institution. Students may not enroll in additional courses at Regis University (including online courses) during the semester in which they study abroad.
