When To Go Abroad?

Students must hold at least a Sophomore standing at NU prior to studying abroad (30 semester credits completed). We advise students to study abroad before their last semester so that they can apply their study abroad experience to any capstone project they might have and so they can be on-campus to complete their final degree requirements.

Example timelines:

1st yr: fall interest/info session, spring applications
