The RIT Office of International Education & Global Programs works closely with students, faculty, affiliate universities and international institutions to provide RIT students with the opportunity to study abroad through over 250 programs spanning more than 50 countries. There is the potential for a student to engage in a study abroad experience during a Fall, Spring, or Summer term. Opportunities are typically identified through a variety of affiliated semester programs, through RIT’s unique faculty-led programs, or possibly at one of RIT’s global campuses. With appropriate planning and by working with both the home academic program and the RIT Study Abroad Office, a student can develop a plan to successfully incorporate a study abroad experience into their academic plan. Depending on the specific experience being considered and a student’s financial aid package, there may or may not be additional costs associated with a study abroad experience.
