UCF Abroad outlines information, including how to choose the right program for you, program costs, application process, how to get a passport or visa, and academic policies and procedures.

Next Steps

If you are interested in studying abroad with one of NSCM’s partner universities or another UCF study abroad program, you first must meet with a Nicholson Academic Student Services advisor.

Eligibility requirements for NSC global partner programs include:

  • You must be a full-time UCF student, in good standing with UCF (priority is given to fully admitted NSC majors and minors, but space is available to non-majors in some programs).
  • You must have attended UCF for at least one full semester (with UCF grades posted) prior to traveling abroad.
  • You must have at least one semester left to graduate (not including summer if studying abroad in spring) upon returning from your semester abroad.
  • Junior standing (Salzburg College program will admit sophomore students).
  • Minimum 3.0 cumulative, UCF and major GPAs.

After your initial eligibility is verified by your NASSC advisor, you must officially apply UCF Abroad by the deadline posted for each semester. The application process is competitive and all applicants are required to submit an essay and provide academic and professional references.

Applicants will be notified of their status approximately two weeks after the application deadline. Selected applicants must meet with their NASSC advisor immediately after accepting the offer of admission to finalize all aspects of the course articulation and enrollment process.
