Study Abroad

Welcome to the study abroad section of the Undergraduate Dean's Office!

Bryn Mawr students on the Great Wall of China

In keeping with the Dean’s Office mission, study abroad promotes the academic and personal growth of undergraduates at the College. We offer personalized advising that enables students to decide on the program that best suits their academic needs. We provide ongoing support for students to make the most of their time abroad and to transition back to Bryn Mawr. Because study abroad involves many steps, the Dean’s Office works in concert with several offices on campus in assisting students to plan for study abroad. Students should seek advice from faculty, their deans and other mentors as they plan for study abroad. 

Study Abroad Advising
Students who are interested in study abroad should consult with Dean Cann, the study abroad adviser, in the Dean’s Office. She can address your questions about study abroad policies, including eligibility requirements, approval to study abroad, transferability of course credit, program costs, overseas applications and admission, study abroad institutional approval forms, housing, visa and immigration processes, and health insurance.

Financial Planning
An important component of study abroad is financial planning. Students are advised to consider the additional costs of study abroad early on in the planning process.

Financial Aid and study abroad
Financial aid for study abroad is available for students who are eligible for assistance and have been receiving financial aid during their freshman and sophomore years.   Questions about eligibility for financial aid, should be directed to The Office of Financial Aid at or by phone at 610-526-5245.

Billing and your Student Account
Questions about billing, BMC tuition payments and refunds, should be directed to Students Accounts at or by phone at 610-526-5255
