Who are my advisors and what do they do?

If you are going abroad on a Global Learning program, the Education Abroad advising team is involved in each stage of the process. The advisors can offer advice to help you choose a program, and guide you through the application and admissions process. Once you are accepted, the advisors can help you prepare for your departure with guidance on the visa application process and health and safety, and answer questions you have as you prepare to leave.


In addition to Global Learning, your college advisor is a key contact for you as you plan to study abroad. Every college has specific academic policies and requirements, and it is important that you understand what they are. For example, are you required to enroll in a certain number of credits while you are abroad? Can you earn credit toward your major? Can you transfer distribution requirements? Are there specific language or area studies requirements for study abroad? You can schedule an appointment or email with your college advisor to ask these types of questions.
