International Education Advising

Whether you are an international student looking for information and support, a prospective study abroad student, or a Spider with questions about other possibilities for traveling abroad, our advisors are here to help you understand the array of available international opportunities, activities and programs. You can meet with an advisor any time during your Richmond experience, but we always encourage students to reach out as early as possible!

While all of our staff can help point you in the right direction, we have a dedicated group who are focused on helping International Students and another focused on Study Abroad.

Students can easily schedule an appointment with an advisor by clicking here. Staff are available in person for meetings as well as through Zoom or by phone.

Advising meetings typically last about 30 minutes. Students with questions may also email an advisor directly.
