Most students study abroad or away their junior year, although it’s possible as early as second semester in your sophomore year or as late as your senior year. You could also choose a semester, year-long or summer program. Whatever you choose, it takes careful planning and it’s never too early to start.
After you’ve considered those key factors, it’s time to do some research! Students should attend a Study Abroad 101 Information Session and the fall Study Abroad Fair. In addition to these events, the Office of Study Abroad & Away provides holistic advising through all stages of the process, from application through returning home. We also encourage students to speak with parents, faculty LEEP Center advisor and program ambassadors throughout the process.
- Students should declare their intent to study abroad with the Study Abroad and Away office at least one semester in advance of applying by filling out an Intent Form, available at the Study Abroad office in person or by request over e-mail.
- Applications are due the semester prior to the desired period away.
