Study Abroad Opportunities at Shaw University

Shaw University seeks to make international understanding and global awareness an integral part of its curricular and campus programming by providing study abroad opportunities for honor students.  The study abroad opportunities include a student exchange program -- those in which Shaw University’s students may study at a foreign institution where Shaw University has established a partnership, and students from that institution have a reciprocal opportunity to study at Shaw University.  This includes a rare opportunity to study in one of the world’s most exciting new venues -- China.  Participants pay their normal registration fees and tuition at Shaw University plus the study abroad fee at the host institution. Shaw registration fees and tuition may be paid by scholarships or waivers. Financial aid may, in most cases, be applied to the costs of exchange programs. In order for a student to be eligible for participation in an exchange program one must have prior approval of the International Program Office and must have attained an adequate level of language competence to be able to function in classes in the host country. A student may also participant in a short course (non-credit) for four weeks at a foreign institution.
