Study Abroad Program Types
OU Study Center semester programs are the University of Oklahoma's signature study abroad programs. At our International Study Centers in Italy and Mexico, you can take classes with OU professors, explore the language and culture of your host country, engage in meaningful dialogue with locals, get active with community service and complete an internship while earning credit toward your degree. OU tuition and fees allow you to apply tuition waiver scholarships, and your financial aid will travel with you, too. Perhaps the best part of our Study Center semester programs is the support and guidance offered by OU's on-site staff, providing for a safe, fun and transformational experience.
Faculty-led programs are designed so that you can take OU courses with OU professors while traveling around the world with other OU students. These programs have OU tuition and fees, so you can apply 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 would like to be immersed in a new cultural and academic setting. Choose from long-term and short-term options.
Affiliate programs are 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, which will show up as transfer credit on your transcript. Tuition and fees are paid directly to your affliate provider, not to the University of Oklahoma. Some financial aid may still apply.
Direct enroll programs allow you to completely immerse yourself in a new cultural and academic setting. You will take classes at a partner university abroad and they will show up as transfer credit on your transcript. 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.
