Does a student have to be a junior to participate in your programs?
Most of our programs require that you be a junior by the time you go abroad, but some of our programs will accept sophomores. We are happy to take applications from college seniors as well, but we recommend checking first with your home university study abroad office; some universities do not allow students to study abroad in their senior year.

Can I earn a full degree abroad through IFSA-Butler?
IFSA-Butler does not offer full degree programs abroad. Our mission is to provide U.S. and Canadian college students with the opportunity to experience another university and culture for a summer, semester or academic year. Upon returning, students can finish their undergraduate degree program and treat their study abroad credits (awarded on an official Butler University transcript) as transfer credit.
