Exchange Programs

Study Abroad

Colorado State University Pueblo's Center for International Programs can arrange study abroad opportunities at universities in Asia, Europe, and Mexico. Under these programs, CSU Pueblo students can study abroad for the cost of regular CSU Pueblo tuition and fees. Students receiving financial aid and/or scholarships continue to collect these benefits while studying in another country.  

Some of the universities in Asia and Europe, at which CSU Pueblo students can study, offer free language instruction in the summer. One year of college-level foreign language instruction is required for studying in a non-English speaking country. This academic year, CSU-Pueblo students are studying at universities in Italy, France, and Germany.  

For more information on the possibility of studying abroad, please contact Strider Swope for an appointment at 719.549.2305 or strider.swope@csupueblo.edu.

Students wishing to participate in study abroad programs, must be in good academic standing and have a minimum GPA of 2.5. We recommend being enrolled with CSU Pueblo for at least one year and of junior status. In order to participate in foreign speaking countries, it is required to have at least two semesters of university studies in the required language. Some universities teach their courses in the English language, but you may need to participate in intensive language courses in the particular country, in order to be able to communicate with locals. 

A reciprocal exchange program is unique in that Colorado State University Pueblo has a contractual relationship with a specific university abroad. It is specified in the agreement that students will "exchange” places at the respective institution. A CSU Pueblo student would pay the exact tuition and fees as if taking courses at CSU Pueblo (resident or nonresident as appropriate) and study at the exchange university for a semester, year, or summer.

The experience of studying abroad will help a student gain a global perspective on other countries and people.
