Semester Study Abroad Programs

You must be a full-time FSW student and have completed at least semester of coursework with a 2.0+ GPA in order to participate in a study abroad program. You can earn college credit at an institution in another country if the course(s) are approved by submitting a Study Abroad Course Credit Approval Petition. Since FSW does not offer semester programs in other countries, you would need to enroll in a program offered by another US university/college or organization in order get transfer credit. If credits are not offered through a US university/college, FSW would require that you obtain transcript through the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES).

You must contact the CIE office as soon as you are ready to begin the planning process. Contact: Dro Seelochan, Phone 239-433-8029 or email: .
