International Students Studying Away

International students interested in studying away might have different or additional considerations than Macalester students who are U.S. citizens. Often times, study abroad programs assume that participants are U.S. citizens, and have designed policies and procedures with that in mind. Considering how your experience might be both similar and different is important not only when choosing a study away location and program, but in preparation for study away as well as during the program.

This page includes information and questions that we suggest you ask yourself if you are an international student considering study away. CSA advisors are ready and willing to discuss these and other topics with you during your advising session.
