Study Abroad Information Session
Interested in studying abroad? Completing an info session is your first step in the application process.
Students are required to complete the Study Abroad Info Session in order to apply for the current application period. 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)
Info Session Options
You have three options when it comes to completing the info session, choose what best fits your schedule, then follow the appropriate instructions for that option. You are only required to complete ONE of these Study Abroad Info Session Options.
