Foundations of Study Abroad

Foundations is the mandatory first-step designed for students who are interested in studying abroad. Get all the essential tools, resources and information needed to study abroad including, program options, application procedures, finances, travel essentials and more. You’ll also have the opportunity to meet and talk with study abroad alumni who can talk with you about their experiences as well as answer any questions you might have about life abroad.

These sessions are held several times a week during the semester. Register online. 

Information Sessions

Info sessions range from program specific sessions, to scholarships and scholarship writing workshops, to budgeting and financing your experience.  Info sessions are held each week during the semester, and each session is often offered more than once throughout the fall and spring. Students also have the opportunity to meet and chat with returned study abroad students and hear about their experience during these sessions. 
If you're in the initial phases of exploring study abroad, you should start by attending Foundations of Study Abroad, which provides the basic information needed to start planning a semester, year or summer abroad.

Meet & Greets

This is an informal gathering for students preparing to study abroad on a particular program to meet study abroad alumni from that program, as well as the other students with whom they will be traveling.
