Study Abroad

This specific page is for CSUSM students who want to study abroad. Both local and international students are more than encouraged to study in a different country during their time at CSUSM.

Current and recently admitted international students who have questions related to their time at CSUSM can contact our International Student Advising team.

Step 1: Attend an Info Session

The first step to studying abroad is attending an info session! We have them every semester on Tuesdays & Thursdays.* Check out our calendar for specific dates and location.

UPDATE 4/20/2020: To practice social-distancing, our Study Abroad Info Session is online but currently unavaliable until captioned. Check back soon!

*Excludes first and last week of school; Winter & Summer break are by appointment ONLY

Office Hours

Summer 2020

3/16/2020 UPDATE: With the recent COVID-19 crisis, the Office of Global Education and most departments will be closing to “flatten the curve” and increase social distancing. Because of this, we unfortunately cannot make in-person appointments with students during this time.

Please contact us at our general email, studyabroad@csusm.eduWe are checking your messages during our normal operating hours, Monday – Friday, 8am to 4:30pm. We will respond to your email as quickly as we can, in the order we received it. 

We apologize for the inconvenience.

When will the office re-open?

3/20/2020 UPDATE: As of right now, we are not sure when we will be back in our beautiful space. The university is doing its best to keep its students and faculty/staff safe by practicing social-distancing. It’s also important to know that the State of California has ordered all residents to stay home except for essential needs. In the meantime, please contact us through email.
