When Can I Go Abroad?

  • Students may study abroad during their junior year.
  • Fall study abroad is encouraged (greater chance of placement in your top choice program)
  • Pre-nursing majors may study abroad during the Spring semester of their Sophomore year
  • Students may elect to study abroad for a year provided they study abroad on the same program for two consecutive semesters.
  • Regis University does not offer summer-long study abroad programming. Please see Regis College Travel Learning for summer study abroad options.
  • Students who meet certain criteria may appeal to study abroad during the Fall semester of their Senior year.

  • Who Can Go Abroad?

    Please remember: you don’t have to be “perfect” to be eligible to study abroad. Even if your GPA, academic integrity, or student conduct record isn’t the best, please apply anyway. We can be flexible on some of the requirements in certain circumstances. Our Selection Committee takes the whole person into consideration when making decisions.
    • Students who are in good academic, financial, and disciplinary good standing at Regis University (i.e. not currently under warning or on probation; financial accounts are currently in good standing; no habitual disciplinary items or currently subject of a disciplinary process; no habitual academic integrity violations).
    • Students must be enrolled in a traditional, block-billed program at Regis University.
    • Students must possess a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 at the time of the study abroad application deadline and must continue to maintain a cumulative 3.0 GPA through the midterm period of the semester prior to the study abroad semester. Exceptions for some programs may be granted on a case-by-case basis to students in certain circumstances.
    • Pre-Nursing majors must possess a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.2 at the time of the study abroad application deadline and must continue to maintain a cumulative 3.2 GPA through the midterm period of the semester prior to the study abroad semester.
    • Students who participate in the Regis Study Abroad Program must accommodate RCC440A,B, and C in their academic schedules. For more, see the requirements dropdown.

    What are the requirements to participate?

  • Program applicants recognize that study abroad is a privilege. Admission is not guaranteed. Admission to the study abroad program is granted conditionally (and may be revoked) at the discretion of the Study Abroad Selection Committee. Programs are subject to change and/or cancellation. The Office of Global Education will work with students to accommodate their requests, but students should expect to be flexible as many features of the study abroad experience (such as program and course availability, program placements, and changes in State Department Travel Warning designations) may be unpredictable and subject to change.
  • Every Study Abroad Program applicant must maintain regular and timely contact with Office of Global Education Staff. Students who habitually fail to respond to important OGE communications in a timely manner may not be granted final approval to participate in the program.
  • Every student who participates in the Regis University Study Abroad Program must enroll in and complete in a satisfactory manner the mandatory Search for Meaning Integrative Core course sequence. Students earn 1 credit each semester for a total of 3 credits:
    • RCC440A: Cultures of Self and Other (completed the semester prior to studying abroad)
    • RCC440B: Intercultural Reflections (online, completed during the semester abroad)
    • RCC440C: Culture and Meaning (completed the semester upon returning to Regis)
  • The 440A, B, and C sequence combined will fulfill the RCC430 M integrative core Search for Meaning requirement (RC, ACB, and CC&IS) and an Upper Division Elective (pre-Nursing majors)
  • Students for whom enrolling in the above courses for one credit will result in a course overload may contact Dr. Olson at to discuss options. 
  • How much will it cost?

    It’s more affordable than you might think! Some study abroad programs cost about the same as staying at Regis for a semester.
