Meet with an Advisor

OIP advisors are available to help students navigate the study abroad process from start to finish.  Before scheduling a meeting with an advisor, students should take the following steps:

  • Review the OIP website and familiarize yourself with the application process.
  • Consider when and where you want to study abroad – you don’t need to know exactly, but give it some thought.
  • Attend any relevant information sessions and the annual Study Abroad Fair. 
  • Meet with a peer advisor during their office hours to discuss general study abroad questions and to your explore options.
