SAE IconStudy Abroad & Exchange integrates global opportunities into the academic experience. We believe that every student deserves the opportunity to embark on transformative experiences, whether that may be through a (virtual or in-person) study abroad or study away program.  We offer a variety of programs in 200+ locations and 40 different countries (and National Student Exchange).  

Why Study Abroad (or Study Away*)?

  • Stay on track - Units earned abroad/away can apply toward your major, minor or GE Pathway requirements at CSU, Chico.

  • It's flexible - Study, internship, and volunteer options are offered for one semester, year, summer, and/or winter terms. Explore your Chico State study abroad/away options, click here.

  • It's affordable – Pay the same CSU tuition and fees or even less with the majority of our programs, AND financial aid and scholarships apply! 

  • Connect your experience to your career and future - Studying abroad/away is one of the best ways to make the most of your college education. Check our Abroad to Career page to learn more. Be one of the fewer than 10% of all U.S. college students who study abroad.

  • It's the adventure of a lifetime - Check out our Weebly blog and hear from past participants.

*Study Away: Study for a semester or a year at another U.S. state or territory (Guam, Puerto Rico, or the Virgin Islands) through National Student Exchange.
