Information Sessions

All students interested in semester or year-long study abroad are required to attend a general information session offered by the Office of International Education (OIE) before meeting with a study abroad advisor or submitting their application to study abroad.

The online advising form on GatewayAbroad must be completed before seeing a study abroad advisor.

If you cannot attend a regular or special information session due to a class or work conflict, please contact us to find out about additional alternatives.
