Co-sponsored education abroad programs vetted and sponsored by one or more academic units at Michigan State University, implemented by an international host partner institution, and staffed by non-Michigan State University faculty. Co-sponsored education abroad programs may include exchange programs, direct enrollment at a university abroad, and consortium and other provider programs. Co-sponsored programs offer course work that is comparable to Michigan State University courses and allows students to make progress toward their degrees while exploring their chosen field of study in an international environment. Co-sponsored programs yield Michigan State University credit and grades, transfer credit, or a combination of both. For advice on how to incorporate education abroad into your undergraduate program, see your academic advisor.
