Information Sessions, Appointments, and Walk-Ins

Off-campus study engages directly with students in several ways:

Walk-in hours are a great way for students to get general information about studying off campus.

Peer advisers are available with basic information about options and processes, or to answer quick questions.

Peer Advising is available Monday - Friday from 10am to 5pm. An appointment is not required.

Students with specific or in-depth questions should schedule an individual advising appointment.

The directory connects students with volunteer ambassadors who have previously studied abroad. Students may contact these ambassadors to learn about their experiences with housing, food, and daily life while on a particular study group or approved program.

The office offers general information sessions throughout the first few months of each academic year for students getting started with their off-campus study planning. They focus on understanding the available options, their related processes, and how to find the opportunity best suited to each student’s needs.
