So you would like to find out more about studying abroad... you've come to the right place!

There are several ways to find out information about programs, scholarships, and how to submit an application, along with any other questions you may have. Please determine which of the options below most fit your needs.
  1. General Study Abroad Information

If you are looking for general information, attend a Study Abroad Information Session - this is the first step for any student looking to study abroad.
  1. Topics include: common study abroad scholarships, types of programs, things to consider, costs, how to research program options, and how to apply.
  2. A current list of info session dates and locations can be found in the Events section of our Facebook page. You can also stop by our office or contact us for the schedule.  

If you have questions about a faculty-led program (FLP), we encourage you to reach out to the program leader directly. The faculty leaders are the best resource for details on eligibility, costs, academics, what kinds of activities the program will include, etc.
  1. You can find the contact information for a program leader on the Overview tab of any FLP program webpage.
