St. Olaf sent more students to study abroad during the 2009–10 academic year than any other baccalaureate institution in the nation, according to the Open Doors 2011 Report on International Educational Exchange — the third straight year the college has ranked first in the total number of students studying abroad.

St. Olaf currently offers nearly 90 study abroad programs in 48 countries, including Global Semester, Term in Asia, and Term in the Middle East.

Open Doors is the comprehensive information resource on international students in the United States and on the more than 200,000 U.S. students who study abroad as part of their academic experience. The Institute of International Education publishes the Open Doors report annually with funding from the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
