Study abroad opportunities are not only possible, but strongly encouraged in all branches of the service.

Military, veteran, ROTC, and military-affiliated students often participate in study abroad programs to gain further global experiences. Students are often able to gain new perspectives as well as enhance and compliment the international experience gained through the military. Penn State’s Office of Veterans Affairs and Services offers addtional resources to active military service members and veterans.
