Information Sessions

Attendance Required

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

Business majors must also attend an information specific specific to Robins School of Business (RSB) students. See below for the details and schedule for these sessions.

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