Study Abroad

There are a wide variety of study abroad programs to choose from and Mercyhurst students are encouraged to use one that best suits their needs.

However, as the college is determined to provide our students with the best options, the study abroad office maintains close relationships with six unique and diverse programs. All of these programs are well-established and internationally recognized.


Students who wish to study abroad must have a minimum 2.75 grade point average. Degree credit is granted upon successful completion of an approved program of international study. Permission to study abroad must be obtained (in the preceding term) from the study abroad advisor, the faculty advisor, the registrar and the Office of Academic Affairs. Students should plan early and review their plans with their faculty advisor and also consult the Student Financial Services Office. Mercyhurst is also affiliated with several international organizations and will grant credit for overseas programs approved by its own director of international admissions and services.
