Make an Appointment

As the staff of OGE are currently teleworking until further notice, OGE will be doing advising appointments via Zoom or phone call. The appointment URL will be shared with you via the Google Calendar invite.

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.

General Advising

Due to COVID-19 and teleworking, Study Abroad 101 will be hosted via Zoom. Please see the link below to RSVP for a session.

Summer Group Advising

During January and February, we offer group advising sessions for students interested or currently applying for summer study abroad programs. During these sessions we 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. These sessions will be held weekly beginning after the Thanksgiving holiday and will continue throughout the application period. To see a list of the scheduled group advising sessions and to sign-up, click the button below.

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.]
