Education Abroad Advising

Follow these steps to start your journey today!

Attend an open advising session

If you have general questions or don't know where to start, come to one of our open advising sessions or request a zoom link. These sessions take place every Monday at 3 and Thursday at 11 in Blackburn 135. You can drop by one of these sessions at any stage of the application process. No appointment needed.

Start your application OR consider meeting with an Education Abroad Advisor

If you know which program you want to apply for you can start your application anytime! If you need help narrowing  your options, you may consider meeting with an advisor in our office. Before your appointment, consider the following:

  • Research available programs on the study abroad website. Your search should take location, time of year, and length of program into consideration, but your focus should remain on the academic fit for your study abroad with the major/minor/area or other degree requirements you have remaining to fulfill for graduation.

  • Limit your options to a few programs that interest you and appear to fit your academic and personal requirements. Think about your personal goals for study abroad, such as independence, language fluency, a specific course fulfillment, or heritage-seeking goal. These aspects should also guide your search and help narrow your options.
