Study Abroad Preparations

Top of Europe

The Study Abroad Team is here to help students learn about study abroad programs and help prepare students for an excellent experience abroad! 

The Study Abroad Advisors will meet with each student individually to talk about their options and guide them through the application process.  Study Abroad advisors are not visa advisors and are not going to choose a school for a student or remind the student individually of every detail or deadline.  Students are responsible for reading materials closely and staying up to date with emails and their online profile and asking questions after they have read the information they have been given.
