Program Description


The Global Scholars Program in Madrid is hosted by the Universidad Carlos III Madrid (UC3M). UC3M was established by an Act of the Spanish Parliament on 5 May 1989, within the framework of the University Reform Act of 1983. From the outset it was intended to be a relatively small, innovative, public university, providing teaching of the highest quality and focused primarily on research! The university actively encourages the personal development of all those connected to the higher education community. All our activities are guided by the values of merit, ability, efficiency, transparency, fairness, equality and respect for the environment.


Students participating in the Global Scholars Program will receive transfer credit from their host university. Therefore, their GPA will not be affected by courses taken during students' semesters abroad on this program. As long as students receive a C or better in their classes abroad, transfer credit will be applied to the students' transcript. The Citadel Office of Study Abroad will take care of pre-approving all course offerings from AUR for the Global Scholars Program. A complete list off available courses will be attached to this application page once all courses have been approved by Citadel faculty members.


Students interested in the Global Scholars Program for the fall semester should submit this application no later than March 15 if they wish to secure a spot. Students must meet the 2.5 GPA requirement and be in good standing in regards to discipline and conduct here at The Citadel. While the deadline is not until March 15, it is possible that the program can fill up prior to this deadline.

Important Steps to Study Abroad:
-Speak with academic advisor about what classes are needed to stay on track
-Alert chain of command that you wish to study abroad
-Contracted students should also alert ROTC departments of plans to study abroad

Any questions or concerns about the process can be directed to the Office of Study Abroad via email at
