Getting Started

Step 1: Complete the Education Abroad Advising Request

Student seeking to study abroad should begin by completing the Education Abroad Advising Request. This application provides Education Abroad information regarding your interests, needs, and goals for your time abroad. The Education Abroad team will provide a curated list of program options based on your input.

Step 2: Review Program Options

Review the options that Education Abroad sends based on your Advising Request. Working with your Education Abroad advisor, you'll schedule an appointment to further explore options and find the program that best fits your goals and academic needs.

Step 3: The Application Process

Once you’re confident about a program, it’s time to apply! Follow the guidance from your education abroad advisor and start on your application. Be sure to read each part of application carefully, and only submit your application once you're ready to fully commit to the program.

Some programs require a deposit at the time of application, so be sure and review the process before completing.

Step 4: Pre-Departure Session

Pre-departure sessions are required for every Education Abroad program. These sessions, led by Global Affairs team members, cover travel health, safety, and other important information needed before you leave for your program. Participants can attend any session, so based on your schedule, find the date and time that works best for you using the link above.

Step 5: While You're Away

Letting your family and friends know that you are well during your time abroad will help make the experience more enjoyable for them, as well as yourself.
