OCU offers a robust study abroad program including faculty-led tours and exchange programs in a wide range of countries across the globe. Studying abroad provides great opportunities to enhance the college education while living in another country. Whether in or beyond the classroom, studying abroad offers enriching academic and cultural experiences that simply can’t be realized in an Oklahoma City classroom. Students who participate in rigorous international experiences develop skills, attitudes, and characteristics that can significantly enhance academic goals, career paths, and personal growth.

To study abroad, students must meet the following criteria:

  • Be in good standing (academic, disciplinary, financial).
  • Earn and maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 before participating in study abroad. Students with a 2.5 to 2.99 will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
  • Successful completion of at least two full-time semesters or the equivalent (30 credit hours) at Oklahoma City University, before participating in a semester-long program. Students may apply for some faculty-led and short-term programs prior to completing two semesters at OCU if they meet the program’s prerequisites.
  • The university reserves the right to refuse any student’s request to study abroad based on conduct, health, or other considerations that are believed to risk harm to the student or others.

Students may set up a meeting to discuss study abroad options by e-mailing studyabroad@okcu.edu. Information about the types of programs offered is available on the Study Abroad website.
