Steps in the Study Abroad Process

The study abroad process is extensive, with many different parties and processes at play. We are here to provide your student with guidance throughout every step of the process. Our advisors regularly meet with students to answer questions and offer advice, while this website provides a host of resources to help students find the best program that fits their interests. We suggest you review each of the following links to learn more about the study abroad process:

  • Starting the Journey: Students can begin their search by reviewing our Getting Started page, learning about who can study abroad and how to find a program that fits their academic, financial, personal, and professional needs.
  • Applying to Study Abroad: Learn about the various steps in the application process through our online system.
