Make an Appointment

Meeting with a Global Education Advisor is an important part of the study abroad application process. Advising appointments are required for semester & full year applicants. Advising appointments are optional for summer applicants. You are encouraged to attend a Study Abroad 101 session first before your individual advising appointment.

OGE is conducting all sessions and appointments via Zoom. The appointment URL will be shared with you after you make your appointment.

General Advising

Study Abroad 101

Study Abroad 101 provides an overview of the programs offered, the application process, and more. We require that you attend Study Abroad 101 before making an individual advising appointment. If you have already attended a Study Abroad 101 or if none are available at this time, you may make an individual advising appointment.

Summer Abroad Group Advising

During November-February, we offer group sessions for students interested or currently applying for summer study abroad programs. These sessions cover the application process & timeline, as well as basic academic & financial planning. This will give you the opportunity to have your questions answered as well as tips and tricks for the application process.

Financial Education

If you are considering going abroad or already applied, we can help you figure out the best way to take charge of your finances in regards to your study abroad. When it comes to being aware of unexpected costs, preparing for living in another country, using credit cards abroad, and more, we can help you budget for a successful study abroad. [Note: this is not financial aid advising, which is done through the Office of Student Financial Services.]
