Semester and Year-Long Programs

St. Lawrence University supports 30 off-campus programs in over 20 countries that allow students to enrich their majors, expand their world, gain cross-cultural perspectives and skills, and prepare to be responsible global citizens. 

Apply by February 1st, 2021 to study off-campus in Fall 2021 and Spring 2022, and Academic Year 2021-2022.

Applications are open and accessible via the program pages below.

Please note that in general the number of students attending off-campus programs is limited and admission is highly competitive. Preference is given to qualified juniors and seniors.

St. Lawrence Programs

St. Lawrence University operates seven of its own semester/year long off-campus programs. Our programs foster deep cultural immersion, typically through homestays, language study, and course work before, during, and after the off-campus program. These well established and highly regarded programs are closely integrated into our campus curriculum and supported by the faculty. 

Partner Programs

The University has partnered with other carefully selected programs in different regions. Some involve direct enrollment in foreign universities, and others are operated by U.S. colleges/universities or highly respected study abroad program providers. 

Students whose academic and area interests lie outside of the opportunities provided by St. Lawrence & St. Lawrence-partner programs may research non-affiliated programs on their own and may submit an application by the St. Lawrence University off-campus study application deadline, after meeting with the Director of Off-Campus Programs.
