Study Abroad Information
Misericordia University works with program providers for semester-long study abroad opportunities. Students may choose to study abroad for one or two semesters, normally in their junior year. Students must consult with their academic advisor regarding courses and number of credits to be taken at the institution abroad.
Students who wish to use courses taken abroad to satisfy specific course requirements at Misericordia University, whether in the core or the major, must secure the approval in advance of the appropriate department chair.
Study abroad credits earned through an affiliated program provider are considered part of the student’s regular course load and carry full academic credit and grade value. Study Abroad credits earned through non-affiliated providers are treated as transfer credits and governed by the “Off Campus Course” policy. Students planning a study abroad experience must consult with the director of student financial services to determine appropriate financial responsibility.
Misericordia’s affiliated program providers are: Globalinks Learning Abroad and Arcadia University.
For more information, to make an appointment with the study abroad advisor, and to obtain the appropriate study abroad paperwork, students must contact the Insalaco Center for Career Development at 570-674-6409.
Misericordia University has proudly pledged to join the Institute of International Education (IIE)’s Generation Study Abroad initiative to double the number of American students who study abroad by the end of the decade.
