There are many ways to have a study abroad experience as an UMass Boston student. Studying abroad is a great way to learn about other cultures while living in another country. The Study Abroad website includes instructions and information for students who wish to study abroad for a semester, summer or an academic year. Please check out their FAQs.
Do not miss out on the following:
- Register for Summer and Fall Study Abroad 2015 programs. Extended deadline is April 15, 2015.
- Apply for the Global Programs Study Abroad Scholarship. Deadline is April 15, 2015.

Once you have been approved to go abroad, you will receive a “Prior Approval of Transfer Credit of Study Abroad Programs Form Study Abroad” form given by the Study Abroad office. This form is used to indicate the courses you plan to take abroad. If you intend to take College of Management courses, you will need to obtain a syllabus for each course and submit them to the College of Management Front Desk in M-5-610 for review to determine if the courses are equivalent. We only review College of Management courses. Any other courses you wish to take must be reviewed by that department. The review process can take two to three weeks so please plan accordingly.
After your courses are reviewed and equivalencies are determined, you will need to make an appointment with your academic advisor before you leave. This is to ensure upon your return, you will remain on track towards completing your degree.
