To allay health concerns related to COVID-19, or Coronavirus, the College is canceling the study abroad programs planned for May through August 2020. We will work to schedule similar experiences in the future. Cancellations include travel to China, Russia, Colombia, Costa Rica and Scotland.
Every year St. Louis Community College offers variety of study abroad opportunities. These programs are led by STLCC faculty and staff. Participating students receive credit and gain international experience and knowledge that only exploring other cultures and countries can offer. See our complete list of programs to find out which program best suits you.
Students need a valid passport to participate. Most countries require the passport to be valid at least six months beyond the dates of the trip. Visit the U.S. passport website for more information on US passports.
Registration and payment schedules for study abroad are significantly different from deadlines for campus-based courses due to travel arrangements and deadlines imposed by vendors. Please plan ahead!
Experience the world through educational and intercultural programs offered by St. Louis Community College. Students and community members can study abroad and earn academic credit as they prepare for success in a global economy.
