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.

Business majors must attend one additional information session specific to Robins School of Business (RSB) students. The details and schedule for these sessions are outlined below.
