OU Study Center Semester Programs
International Study Centers are the signature study abroad programs at the University of Oklahoma! WIth Centers in Italy and Mexico, students can take classes taught by OU professors, explore the language and culture of their host country, engage in meaningful dialogue with locals, and get active with community service or through internships, while earning credit towards their degrees. OU tuition and fees allow students to apply tuition waiver scholarships, and financial aid travels along too. Perhaps the best part is the support and guidance by OU's on-site staff, providing for a safe, fun and transformational experience.
Faculty-Led Programs are designed for you to take OU courses by OU professors, all while travelling around the world with other OU students! These programs have OU tuition and fees, so you can apply those tuition waiver scholarships and any applicable financial aid! We offer a variety of long term and short term program options.
Exchange Programs allow you to take classes at a university abroad, but continue paying OU tuition and fees at your normal rate. These programs are highly independent and ideal for students who want to be immersed in a new cultural and academic setting. Choose from long term and select short term options!
Affiliate Programs are programs facilitated by approved Affiliate Providers with which the University of Oklahoma has an active agreement. Affiliate programs offer a variety of academic courses and internship opportunities, and will show up as transfer credit on your transcript. Tuition and fees are paid directly to your Affiliate Provider, not to the University of Oklahoma. Some financial aid may still apply!
Direct Enroll Programs
Direct Enroll Programs allow you to immerse yourself in a new cultural and academic setting. You will take classes at a partner university abroad, and courses will come back as transfer credit. Tuition and fees will be paid directly to the partner university abroad, not to the University of Oklahoma. Some financial aid may still apply. Choose from select long term and short term options!
Students are selected for study abroad programs based on the following criteria: grade point average, personal essays, academic standing, and letters of recommendation. For certain study abroad destinations with limited availability, the selection process is quite competitive. All students who qualify for study abroad are offered a location for study, but because of the competitive process, some may not be admitted to the school or destination that they most prefer.
