Getting Started

How to Get Started

The benefits of studying abroad are universal. You will be inspired by the sites you will see, the people you will meet and the experiences you will have. Whether you decide to go for a year, a semester, a summer, or for just a few weeks with one of the short-term programs at SD Mines, you may earn credits toward your degree program. The Ivanhoe International Center can answer your questions and many of those answers can be found here on the Study Abroad web pages.
