Support Study Abroad
The Office of International Studies (OIS) encourages students to expand their education through international experiences. Study abroad provides students with in-depth participation in a new culture leading to diverse intellectual perspectives, and active engagement with local and global communities and their needs. These experiences, in turn, lay impeccable foundations for student’s future academic study, professional development, and personal growth. We encourage you to support and help with a student’s decision to study aboard.
At Metro, we provide our students a wide variety of options for studying abroad. We offer programs in over 60 countries, in nearly 150 areas of study, for any length of time from 2 weeks to 2 years. Courses are able to fulfill general electives, major and minor requirements in a range of disciplines, as well as general studies.
- Metro London Semester - A unique partnership between the American Institute for Foreign Study (AIFS), University of Wyoming, University of Wisconsin, Madison, and Mount Saint Mary’s College. Students on this program earn 12 Metro Credits that work towards their major, minor, general studies and/or general electives. Internship opportunities are also available. This program gives students the opportunity to study and live in one of the most dynamic cities in the world.
- Partnership Programs - Third party organizations that are partnered with MSU Denver to create optimal study abroad experience for students. Programs can be short term or full academic years. Many MSU Denver students use these programs because they offer opportunities world-wide with all types of courses available.

- Intern, Volunteer, and Teach Abroad Programs
All students studying abroad with the Metro London Semester or a Parnership Program complete a Course Approval Form. This form allows students and Department Chairs to decide how courses will be transfered back to MSU Denver.
Depending on the type of program, students will either earn Metro-specific credit with a letter grade OR transfer credit. For students receiving transfer credit, it will be added to transcript in one lump sum under the foreign university attended. Those credits are then divvied into major, minor, general elective or general study via CAPP reports.
If you or any students have questions regarding study abroad, please contact Jennifer Provizer, Study Abroad Program Assistant & Advisor at 303 352 7236 or email@example.com
