Gettysburg College views semester-long global study as a vital part of our students' undergraduate experience. Knowledgeable advisors and faculty mentors help students choose a program that meets their academic goals and personal needs. Credit transfer is handled prior to departure through an on-line course approval process linked to our registrar. An on-campus orientation program compliments the more in-depth orientations in which our students participate upon arrival. Health, safety, cultural differences, and logistical information are covered at both orientations.
Students are supported on-site by our Program Partners' expert staff, who are knowledgeable about local culture. Gettysburg College continues to have contact with our global study students throughout their time away. Registration processes, housing selection and campus updates keep our off campus students part of our on-campus community.
Students, faculty, and families will find useful resources for various aspects of the global experience.
