Make an Advising Appointment

Students interested in education abroad 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.

  • Appointments are being held by Zoom until further notice. Your advisor will contact you with the link and password when confirming your appointment.
  • All students are strongly encouraged to complete the Education Abroad Workshop and quiz following as preparation for your advising appointment. 
  • 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.
  • If you are not available during the hours of the advisor with whom you would like to meet, email the advisor directly to set up a separate date and time to talk.
