Study Abroad Programs

Students at the University of Nebraska at Kearney can participate in an international experience in almost any country. Programs range in length from several weeks to a full year. Regardless of the field you choose to study, a program is available for you, and class credit will transfer to the UNK curriculum if you plan carefully with your academic advisor prior to departure. The Study Abroad Office is ready to help you choose a program that is right for you!


Exchange programs are those programs whose credits count as transfer or elective credits at UNK. Exchange programs receive 12 credits.

* Exchange program = Participants pay 12 hours of UNK tuition at whichever rate has been established for them according to their academic status (Resident/Non-Resident, Undergraduate/Graduate) at UNK.
