dream. discover. explore. learn. connect. go.

Thank you for supporting your student/friend in this experience of a lifetime!  Please review a letter to you from the Study Abroad Manager, Susan Welker.

All students are required to attend a Pre-Departure Orientation.  The documents from the orientation can be found here.

All students have a different experience!  Below is a cultural adjustment curve showing the common highs and lows of experiencing a new culture.  Studying abroad is an exeperience of a lifetime - but not because it is always easy.  Be supportive and if you are concerned about the mental or physical health of a loved one, please seek assistance.  If you have immediate concerns about a loved one abroad, please contact University Police at 406-994-2121.  If your concerns are not immediate, please contact the Study Abroad Office at 406-994-7151 or
