Interested in studying abroad? Completing an info session is your first step in the application process

The session provides information about your study abroad options, academic considerations, financing for your study abroad, and will help you with your decision-making process. Once you have completed the Study Abroad Info Session you will receive access to the online study abroad application (in December). 

Current Application Period: Please note this information is currently being updated for the S23, F23, and W24 application period - info sessions will open in mid-September.
Application Due Date: Friday, January 27th, 2023 (find a full list of application due dates here)
