An experience abroad is often the single most important and rewarding activity a student engages in during their academic career. It can also be a lot of hard work, and at times the process is by its nature confusing and complex. You can always call or come in to see us.
Only University of Minnesota students are required to create a profile.
Non–University of Minnesota students should visit the Non UofM Students web page for a step-by-step guide on how to go abroad with the UofM.
