It is never too early to start thinking about studying abroad!
You can start having conversations with your faculty and college advisors for study abroad beginning on your first day on campus.
To research options and apply to your chosen program, work with Education Abroad advisors up to one year prior to studying abroad. If you are a pre-med/pre-vet student, an engineer, or someone who wants to conduct your studies in a foreign language, it's wise to plan even earlier.
Deadlines vary for study abroad in 2021–22 and are dependent on health, safety, and programmatic criteria. Visit our Fall 2021 FAQ for more information.
