Our study abroad program allows students to continue working toward their degree while living overseas for a full academic year or a single semester. In doing so, students grow intellectually, develop inter-cultural skills, and learn foreign languages.
To study abroad, you must meet the minimum GPA requirement in the semester prior to your intended stay abroad. In general, students must have a 2.8 cumulative GPA at the time of the program application deadline. You must also be of at least sophomore standing to participate in the study abroad experience. However, check with individual programs for any other requirements.
The Center for International Studies will continue to monitor COVID-19 following guidance from the Department of State, CDC and New Jersey Department of Health.
Students can use our program matching tool or start an application through our Kean Abroad Portal. You can also simply browse our programs if you are not ready to apply yet.
Most students need some form of financial aid to study abroad. Your campus Financial Aid Office will consider you as eligible when you study abroad through any of the programs offered by Kean University. Your study abroad coordinator will work with you and with the Office of Financial Aid in determining your study abroad budget.
