The Study Abroad Office (SAO) at Point Loma Nazarene University can help students participate in programs in every region of the world. Students also go to new countries and new programs every year. These programs fall into three categories:

  •     PLNU Sponsored Programs
  •     Affiliated Programs

PLNU sponsored programs are run by PLNU faculty through specific departments on campus. Affiliated programs are sponsored through universities and agencies that have a formal relationship with PLNU. Credits are usually earned in another university and then transferred to PLNU.

Please note that all study abroad programs must be approved by the PLNU Study Abroad Office.
