News and Events


We look forward to when Study Abroad through Cal Poly will resume to allow for more Mustangs to Bring Cal Poly to the World and the World to Cal Poly. We continue to monitor the worldwide situation of COVID-19 and work with our international partners and campus/CSU leadership to find the right timing to reopen abroad programming. Your health & safety are our top priorities!

We are also passionate about opportunities that allow for Learn by Doing in a global context and want to continue to inform you about the many programs available to you through Cal Poly. We always state that students should plan early and now is no different! Attend our information sessions and Study Abroad Fair, visit our peer advisors and browse this website to learn of what programs may be the best fit for you academically, personally and professionally. You’ll be ready for when international travel and study abroad are once more integral facets of your Cal Poly education. In the meantime, check out our virtual exchange and internship programs and learn how you can integrate international perspectives into your degree from home! We look forward to talking with you!
