The Center for Global Study and Engagement staff will help you through this process and answer your academic, travel and overseas living questions. Your academic advisor, on-campus coordinators, global ambassadors, Office of Equity and Inclusion, Access and Disability Services, and returning study abroad students are also excellent resources as you begin to explore your options. We encourage you to share the information you learn with your support system as you prepare for your experience.


Off campus programs are an extension of your academic major, provide a unique opportunity for cross cultural learning, and offer experiences to develop new skills and interests. Follow the process below to get started:

  • Learn about study abroad/away opportunities: Program Discovery. Note that some programs are available to specific majors and minors or may have language prerequisites. 

  • Explore the Course Equivalency Database to learn about global courses students have taken

  • Schedule an appointment with a global advisor if you are unsure which program is the best fit for you

  • Talk with your academic advisor about your major and study abroad

  • Apply for your program by the deadline date.

NOTE: If you intend to study on a program in the fall and a different program for the spring, please meet with a global advisor as this may require additional planning. 


Deadlines may vary; below are general guidelines. Please check your program for the program-specific deadline.
