Deciding whether or not study abroad is right for you requires thoughtful consideration. The Practical Questions guide alerts you to many things you need to think about regarding your decision. If you have financial concerns related to your program, contact your financial aid consultant in Student Financial Services. It is important to review the list of outside scholarships for study abroad.
After meeting with your academic and study abroad advisors and identifying the program that is best suited for you both academically and personally, you are ready to begin the application process. Students are encouraged to begin the application process as early as mid October to ensure meeting the program application deadlines. The step-by-step application checklist will guide you through the process of being approved to apply for study abroad, completing the course evaluation form and then completing the program specific application. All application materials are completed on line and many programs review applications on a rolling admission basis. Program websites are great resources for students to obtain detailed course and program information.
