Study Abroad Office

The Study Abroad Office at Northwest strives to provide students and faculty with exposure to different educational systems and insight into new cultures that will allow them to develop necessary skills to interact in a world of constant change.

Studying abroad is one of many academic options that Northwest students from all academic areas are invited to experience. Whether a short-term program, a summer program, a trimester or an academic year, students have the opportunity to earn Northwest credit abroad, at the same time they are exposed to a new educational system. Students broaden their horizons by traveling to an international location to study with local citizens and/or international students to experience global living.

The Study Abroad Office assists students in identifying the program best suited to meet their academic and cultural interests. Study Abroad advisors link students with academic advisors, financial aid counselors and other student service providers to plan a rewarding international educational experience.
