Johnson State College encourages students in gaining a global education through Study Abroad. In addition to the study abroad opportunities available through NSE and various affiliate programs, many JSC programs and faculty sponsor short-term international study tours, field research projects and service learning opportunities. Early planning is encouraged to assure the timely completion of all academic degree requirements. Students considering a semester abroad should meet with an advisor in the Advising and Career Center at least six months prior to the semester in which they wish to study abroad. It is important that all study abroad experiences that are not tied to a class be arranged through the Advising and Career Center.
