Familiarize yourself with VCUs travel restrictions.


Check out this Navigating COVID-19 Abroad page for tips on how to navigate the current uncertainties of international travel.

Featured External_SemesterIn addition to VCU Semester Programs, students are welcome to explore other program options through VCU's third party affiliates and other alternatives such as applying directly to a foreign university or participating in a program run by another U.S. institution abroad.  We recommend that you start by browsing the featured programs below, although keep in mind that you are not limited to these options. Consult our program search tool and your Education Abroad Advisor to see what else is out there. External resources like StudyAbroad101.com or GoAbroad.com will have more comprehensive listings of programs.  
 
If you decide to participate in an external program, you are required to register your program with VCU Education Abroad in order to earn transferable credit and in order to be eligible to utilize funding resources through VCU such as financial aid and scholarships.  You may register your program by searching for the program in our program search tool or, if it is not a program in our database, by completing an Alternative program registration.  Complete this form to register for a Virtual Study/Intern program. Contact an Education Abroad Advisor for more guidance in the process of registering your program with VCU Education Abroad.
