Research Your Program Options

Check out our "Study Abroad 101" online presentation. Review the Non-IU Academic Policies to determine your eligibility to participate on a non-IU program.

Consult the Affiliated Programs list for semester and academic year programs in which IU students frequently participate. Consult the CIC Programs list for options in the Big 10 that offer programs at a more affordable cost. 

Additional programs are available through IIE Passport.

Verify that the country where you intend to study is not on the US State Department travel warning list. Indiana University students may not study abroad with IU approval and support in any country for which there is a Travel Warning unless a program exception has been granted. This means that you may not retain your IU status or apply your financial aid to the costs of the program.

When researching programs offered through external institutions, make sure to check the Big List for all programs that are co-sponsored by Indiana University. If your selected program is on this list, then you must apply to the program through IU. If the program is not co-sponsored by IU, then you will directly apply to the program.  Check with Overseas Study for more information.

Once you have thoroughly reviewed program materials, if you have further questions you may consult with an advisor in Overseas Study.
