SBCC Study Abroad Programs offer short and semester programs every academic year. Programs are faculty-led and therefore destinations as well as course offerings change.

We strive to offer diverse and financially accessible programs. In addition, many scholarships are available. Visit the Financial Aid/Scholarships tab to learn more.

Courses offered on the programs are usually UC/CSU transferable and may fulfill IGETC requirements. Students do not currently have to be enrolled at SBCC, but are required to enroll if accepted into the program to participate.

Information meetings will be held on the SBCC campus for every program. Visit Information Meetings to get dates and times. 

Applications for each program can be picked up at the SBCC Study Abroad Office, IE-1 or downloaded and printed HERE.
