Study Abroad

Study Abroad Orientation Schedule

Winter Term Programs Abroad

Winter Term study abroad students will attend a meeting in the spring prior to their program abroad. Each Winter Term study abroad course also has a required one semester-hour fall pre-departure course associated with it.


Fall 2015 and Summer 2015 Programs Abroad

A successful semester and summer abroad is dependent upon adequate preparation. Students will participate in a series of mandatory orientations during the semester prior to studying abroad. These orientations will address issues of academic, cultural, logistical, financial, and personal preparation, as well as health and safety. Failure to participate in the required orientations will result in dismissal from the program. Any financial losses incurred by this dismissal, including program fees and international airfare, will be fully the responsibility of the student.
