Study Abroad Information
How to Study Abroad
Currently, BYU-Idaho does not have a study abroad office. However, there are still options available for students who are interested in studying abroad, such as:
- The BYU Kennedy Center Study Abroad Program
- Direct enrollment at a foreign university or program
- Third-party programs and organizations
BYU-Idaho financial aid cannot be used at this time to fund study abroad through the Kennedy Center. However, there are many outside scholarships students can apply for to use for study abroad. Some examples are:
- Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program
- Critical Language Scholarship Program
- Fund for Education Abroad
- The Boren Awards
Transferring Credits back to BYU-Idaho
Before applying to a program, please meet with the Department Chair of your major to discuss transferring study abroad credits back to BYU-Idaho. International transcripts are required to go through a third-party evaluation service such as IERF.org or WES.org which does come with a fee. When preparing to transfer credits back to BYU-Idaho, please visit the Transfer Evaluation website for more information or contact email@example.com.
