Academic Considerations

The Role of Academic Advisors

Academic advisors play a critical role in the study abroad process, as well as the director of the Office of International Programs. It is important to meet with your Academic Advisor and/or Co-op counselor to discuss a study plan for your experience abroad. It is also required to meet with the director of the Office of International Programs prior to applying. You will select which courses are best suited for an international experience, as well as when the best time to go abroad. During your meeting, you will discuss the many possible locations to study, such as Europe, Asia and Latin America.

The Office of International Programs can provide assistance and information to assist the academic advisors when aiding students who are interested in an international educational experience.
