Steps to Study Abroad

  1. LEARN
    Check out program options on our website, attend an Interest Session to get an overview of study abroad programs, and then stop by Walk-In Advising Hours to ask more specific questions.

  2. FUND
    Apply for national, college, department, OSA, and provider company scholarships. Set up appointments with Financial Aid and Admissions and Scholarships to see how your existing funding may apply. Make a personal savings plan.

  3. CHOOSE
    Compare your options by price, location, course selection, or other factors. When you decide, begin an application on our website. Your provider company or exchange university may also require a separate application.

  4. PREPARE
    Stay on top of your applications, Course Approval Form, Outbound Orientation, course registration, and other paperwork and deadlines. Make housing, visa, and travel arrangements.

  5. DEPART
    Begin your study abroad adventure! See the world, learn about your host country, study hard, and make new friends. Don't forget to keep in touch! #dawgsabroad.
