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: 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!
- Do you already have a few programs in mind? Have no idea where to start? Browse our approved programs, here.
- Read about how to choose a program. It is really important that you know what to expect in terms of classes, housing, support on site and budgeting.
