Access the World Initiative

Rutgers ACCESS THE WORLD Initiative

30+ Global Destinations | Rutgers Credits Abroad | All at Rutgers cost*

At Rutgers University, we are committed to access for all students, and that extends to a wide range of amazing global education opportunities. We believe that studying abroad is not only possible for every Rutgers student, but also an experience that every student should be able to afford. With that in mind, we created the Access the World Initiative, which seeks to ensure that every Rutgers student has access to opportunities for global learning which are academically rigorous, degree-relevant, and culturally transformative. In addition, these experiences will empower students for impact in their local and global communities.

Access the World offers a range of semester study abroad programs across the globe at or below the cost of a semester at Rutgers. See below for more information on all our programs.

Be sure to learn about our Passport to the World initiative, which covers the costs for Rutgers students to obtain their first U.S. passport.
