Education Abroad

Explore Ed Abroad Program


Welcome to the CSUSB Education Abroad website. This site is designed for currently-enrolled CSUSB students who want to study, serve, intern, or volunteer abroad or in the U.S. If you are a student who is interested in studying at CSUSB, and you are an exchange student abroad, please visit this site. Note: for all COVID-19 updates, please visit our website,

At CSUSB, there are many things you can do:

  • You can study abroad. You can take classes you can't take here, graduate on time, study a language, explore your heritage, experience the world, and get better job opportunities.
  • You can see results. In one study, recent college graduates who studied abroad got their first job within 6 months of graduation, and most reported that study abroad was effective or very effective in building job skills.
  • You can afford it. Most students will receive their financial aid on education abroad programs, in addition to the many CSUSB and external funds and scholarships.
  • You can go (practically) anywhere, any time. Please see descriptions of our credit-bearing programs and non-credit experiences in the U.S. and abroad.
  • You can visit us. Our Education Abroad office offers walk-in hours - no appointments necessary - most Mondays through Thursdays from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. in the Center for Global Innovation (CGI), on the third floor. You can make an advising appointment, call (909) 537-5212, or email us at to schedule a visit.
  • You belong. Most students who study abroad with CSUSB are the first in their family to get a college degree and most receive financial aid. We are happy you can go abroad with us!
