Study Abroad Pre-Advising New!

Are you interested in studying abroad, but hesitating to get the ball rolling?
Are you looking for a general idea about studying abroad first?

We are here for you!  Please swing by the Office of International Programs at AuCoin 112.5, or contact Atsuko Rothberg.

Also, we would like to encourage you to read Tips for the Uncertain Student.


Step 1 | Mandatory Advising Appointment

You must schedule and attend an individual study abroad advising appointment with the Office of International Programs (OIP) to take place during the Fall semester. This is an opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have and for us to ensure you are fully informed of your program options, eligibility requirements, and the cost structure of the program of your choice. An advising appointment usually only takes 15 – 30 minutes, longer or shorter as you prefer. If you find that your schedule does not permit an appointment during the Fall semester, please contact us to discuss other options.

December 1:  For Petition
February 10:  For General Programs

*Once you complete Step 1, we will grant you access to the Study Abroad Moodle page where you find the application process details and links to the required documents (Study Abroad application, supplemental documents...etc.)

This step is required for all programs, including petitions. 

Step 3 | Submit Program Application to Partner University/ Study Abroad Provider 

This is AFTER you are approved to study abroad in Step 2.
