Student Groups Abroad

Student Groups abroad are non-credit bearing experiences (such as volunteer or service learning program). These opportunities are under the direction of a Texas A&M student organization. As the name suggests, these are short trips abroad that usually last one to two weeks. These programs are typically designed for a group to travel together, complete a specific project or academic outcome, or pursue an activity related to the group's mission or purpose.

Faculty, staff, or student leaders interested in coordinating a student group abroad should register the experience with the Study Abroad Programs Office in accordance with Standard Administrative Procedure 21.01.03.M0.02.

The Study Abroad Programs Office primarily provides risk management and emergency support for student groups abroad. There is a $45 fee per student participant to cover the costs of administrative support and is inclusive of the overseas medical insurance and emergency evacuation coverage for participants/leaders. 

To register a student group abroad (programs associated with Division of Student Affairs, Student Activities, Student Athletics), begin the registration via the Student Group Abroad Registration page. NOTE: As part of the student group registration, all student organizations must register through Maroon Link.
We ask that all leaders of a student group abroad view this brief video, which provides an overview for taking your student organization abroad
