Study Abroad for Non-Traditional Students
Welcome to the website for Non-traditional students.Within the document below, a number of questions and issues specific to non-traditional students are addressed to help explain the process. This document should help non-traditional students:
- Decide whether study abroad is right for them,
- Understand the benefits of studying abroad,
- What steps to take once they have decided to participate,
- How to manage issues that are specific to non-traditional students,
- And how to market their study abroad experience once students have returned from their programs.
Studying abroad is for every student young and "old", and Pitt offers programs ranging from three weeks to an entire academic year in order to accommodate student's diverse needs and schedules. If you have been thinking about studying abroad, take some time to explore our website, research programs that we offer, and take advantage of our office resources by stopping in to talk to a study abroad advisor about your options.
There is also a resource that explains tuition remission policies as well as provides student testimonials and travel tips from non-traditional students who have studied abroad.
In addition to this resource, we have complied a few stories of other nontraditional students and their experiences abroad.
