Make an Advising Appointment

Once you have completed the Education Abroad Workshop, you are encouraged to meet with an Education Abroad Advisor. Advisors are specialists in the field of international education with regional expertise. They can help you evaluate program options in order to meet your goals, answer specific questions, and guide you throughout the process of applying and preparing to study abroad.

When requesting an appointment: please specify your class year, major, academic goals for your international experience, program(s) and term you are interested in, and a list of specific questions you would like to discuss.

Student interns are also available to provide peer advising for students who have general questions or want to speak to a fellow student about education abroad. The peer advising schedule can be found on the Interns page. No appointment is required for peer advising.
