It’s back-to-school time, the best of times and the worst of times, and you have a lot going on. Still, if you are thinking about studying abroad this year, it’s best to plan early. Thinking about going abroad for the spring semester? You have until about mid October for most programs but some deadlines are earlier, so check your program for details. Thinking about doing a J-Term program during your break? Most deadlines are October 1st. So what should you do when you get back to school? Read on:
1. Meet with your adviser
Talk to him or her about your plans, courses you can take for your major or electives and what you need to do to transfer them towards your degree. You can view course descriptions on the website and email us if you need detailed course syllabi.
2. Talk to your study abroad office
They will have all the information you need in order to complete the process the right way with your school, how to apply and how to coordinate with financial aid if you want to try and transfer aid or scholarships you receive.
3. Talk to your parents
Discuss with them why you want to go abroad, how it is safe and organized, and how you think it will impact you both personally, academically and professionally.
