Outbound Students

Why Go Abroad?

  • It counts—Units earned abroad apply toward your degree at CSULB.
  • It's flexible—There are study, internship, and volunteer options for one year, one semester, spring break, summer session, and winter session.
  • It's affordable—For most locations, the cost of living is the same as or less than living in southern California and financial aid and scholarships apply.
  • It's a résumé builder—Studying, interning, and volunteering abroad are some of the best ways to make the most of your college education. Be one of the fewer than 2% of all U.S. college students who study abroad and fewer than 1% who intern abroad.
  • It's life-changing.
APPLY before the deadline:
  • March 9 for fall semester programs and calendar year programs
  • October 1 for spring semester programs and CSULB academic year programs
  • December 15 for CSU academic year programs (CSU IP)
