SF State Abroad

To limit potential COVID-19 spreading within our community, we are serving our students remotely. Advising and workshops/meetings are only available online via zoom and phone.

Study abroad has been approved for most countries for fall 2021 with students currently abroad. We look forward to sending even more students abroad spring 2022!
