Study Abroad

College of General Studies students are encouraged to enhance their education with a study abroad experience. You can earn credit toward your University of Pittsburgh degree through participation in either Pitt-sponsored, exchange, or Pitt-recognized programs. The University offers a wide variety of study abroad options, from semester programs to short one-, three-, or five-week programs that can fit your busy schedule. The Study Abroad Office has more information about taking advantage of study abroad opportunities as an adult student.

Academic Credit for Study Abroad

Approval for credit must be obtained before studying abroad. The study abroad advisor provides approval and the CGS advisor approves course selection and credits. You should have at least a 2.75 GPA before seeking permission to study abroad.
