Program Description:
UR students are permitted to go on accredited study abroad programs offered by other U.S. universities or institutions. While you will not submit your program application to the UR Center for Education Abroad, our staff will still assist you before, during, and after your term overseas. 

Why students choose Non UR-sponsored programs:
  • Although the minimum overall GPA for applying to UR-sponsored programs is 2.75, many programs have more stringent requirements. Students may find they have more flexibility with non-UR programs. 
  • For some students, particularly those who do not receive any merit or need-based scholarships from UR, the overall cost of the program may be lower.
  • No college or university can offer a program in every country. Allowing students to choose from the more than 4,500 options available opens more options.
  • You may be interested in a studying a language or topic not currently offered on a UR program.
  • Some non-UR programs offer unique opportunities such as multi-country itineraries or rigorous, field-based research. 
  • You may wish to study directly at an institution or university with which the University of Rochester does not currently have an affiliation.
