FIU Study Abroad programs provide our students with the opportunity to participate in faculty-led, short term programs abroad with other FIU students. As a participant in the program, you enroll at FIU and attend classes abroad with an FIU professor and FIU students. The programs vary in length—anywhere from 10 days to 6 weeks—affording you a short-term glimpse of the world, while providing you with a global, Worlds Ahead academic experience. Most programs are offered during the summer and in a variety of fields and destinations. There are more than 25 FIU Study Abroad programs to choose from and you can sign up for one of them as early as your freshman year at FIU. To contact the FIU Office of Study Abroad, click here. 


Study Abroad Program Requirements

The minimum GPA requirement to participate in a FIU Study Abroad program is a 2.0. However, each program has a specific set of academic requirements as determined by the Faculty Director for that program. You may apply for a study abroad program as early as your freshman year in college.

In order to use your financial aid for your study abroad program, you must complete the FAFSA form which can be found here. Your eligibility for financial aid is determined by the information submitted on the FAFSA form, including your income and your parents’ income. The FIU Financial Aid Office (located in PC 125) has all the information you need to start the FAFSA application process.


As an FIU student participating in the International Student Exchange or FIU Study Abroad programs, you may use all of your aid available for your study abroad program. This will include state or institutional scholarships as well as federal Pell grant, student loans, and all other financial aid. Students may also use their Florida Prepaid benefits to pay for part of the tuition portion of their study abroad programs. To learn more, click here.
