Meeting with Advisors

From your academic advisor to a peer advisor, you can find lots of people excited to share their knowledge with you and support you on this journey. See our Advisor page for more detail.

Academic Advisor
Connecting with your academic advisor is important early on so they can help you plan for the best time to consider going abroad, programs that suit your educational goals, and how to consider completing any necessary requirements.

Study Abroad Advisors
IE study abroad advisors look forward to providing information and support throughout the process of studyabroad—before, during and after! Our team can help you with any question no matter how big or small. Each advisor has a specific programmatic or geographic region of responsibility, but they are each highly knowledgeable about our process and programs.

Language Abroad Advisors
If you are applying to a study abroad program in which the language of instruction is not English, refer to the webpages below to see which faculty members can advise you.

Languages, Literatures,and Cultures – Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Russian

Latin American, Latino, and Iberian Studies – Spanish, Portuguese
Latin American, Latino, and Iberian Studies majors and minors must meet with the professor responsible for their particular study abroad program. This meeting is optional for non-majors who will be taking classes in Spanish or Portuguese.
