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. To learn more about the advising process for summer, please click here or scroll further down. You are required 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.

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.]
