Studying abroad requires advance planning, some flexibility, and good communication with the study abroad office.
While most students study away their junior year, it is possible as early as second semester in your sophomore year or as late as your senior year. You may also choose a semester, year-long, May term* or summer program. Whatever you choose, it takes careful planning and it’s never too early to start.
Step 1: Attend Study Abroad 101 and Review Requirements
- The first thing we normally recommend that students do is attend a Study Abroad 101 information session and attend any relevant information sessions. This will give you a basic overview of the process and what options are available.
Step 2: Research and Come to Drop-in Hours
- Do you already have a few programs in mind? Have no idea where to start? Browse our approved programs, here.
Step 3: Start an applicant profile at least one year in advance of your desired semester abroad
- Application deadlines are found here.
- If you have a more complicated question that cannot be answered during drop-in hours or via e-mail, you may wish to make an appointment.
Step 4: Apply!
