Foreign Study at Fisher
Learn in ways you'll never forget when you internationalize your education through Fisher’s foreign study program.
Fisher's Foreign Study program gives you access to more than 100 programs around the world - including Africa, Latin America, Southeast Asia, and Europe.
The program gives you academic access to more than 100 locations around the world, including Europe, Latin America, Southeast Asia, and Africa. All grades earned abroad are counted as part of your Fisher grade point average, and – unlike with other colleges – your financial aid applies to all affiliate programs.
An added benefit of the program is the Study Abroad Club. Members of the club can help you through the application process and answer general questions about studying abroad. This organization also brings study abroad alumni together to share their experiences, forging academic and professional connections in the process.
Foreign study generally takes place during both the fall and spring semesters. There also are many summer offerings available through our affiliated programs.
Choose from more than 100 programs offered by our three affiliated study abroad providers:
- American Institute for Foreign Study (AIFS)
- Central College Abroad (CCA)
- Council on International Education Exchange (CIEE)
While you are abroad, you will be required to enroll in at least 12 credit hours of classes. While courses offered abroad vary greatly, depending on the program, you may be able to take several classes that count toward your major and Fisher Core Curriculum requirements. All courses are taken for a grade, meaning no pass/fail.
You are considered eligible for the foreign study program if you are a:
- Sophomore with a minimum 3.0 GPA, and have declared a major and secured approval from your department
- Junior or senior with a minimum 2.75 GPA
You also must be in good disciplinary standing with the College.
