Study Abroad in France!

"Rester, c'est exister - Mais voyager, c'est vivre" (Gustave Nadaud)To stay is to exist - But to travel is to live

Almost all our students spend a semester or a year in France. You can even study abroad in multiple countries. We have a partnership with the Institute for American Universities in the South of France and our students love the safe, small charming town of Aix-en-Provence.

If you study abroad with one of our SMC-Sponsored or Lasallian Exchange programs, 

  • Courses transfer back one-to-one. All courses are vetted and pre-approved by Saint Mary's faculty and transferred back as SMC equivalents

  • Students can take classes that count towards their major & minor requirements to ensure that they graduate on time

  • There are no additional program cost--tuition and housing costs are the same on campus as they are abroad

  •  Financial aid and SMC scholarships travel with you--students who study on a SMC program can apply all their federal and state financial aid as well as any institutional scholarships


We are happy to help you find the best program. As a first step, check out our Study Abroad website:
