Things To Remember

Maximizing Your Experience

Embarking on a study abroad adventure promises to be an unforgettable experience, filled with enriching cultural encounters, academic growth, and lasting memories. Before you set off on this exciting journey, it's essential to keep a few key things in mind. Ensuring a smooth and successful experience abroad starts with proper preparation and awareness of important considerations. Here are some vital Things to Remember that will help you make the most of your time abroad, and make this chapter of your life truly extraordinary.

  • Don't forget to apply for your passport. It can take up to two months to complete the process. If you already have a passport, make sure that it is still valid and will not expire while you are abroad.
  • Become versed in the Visa requirements for your host country. You will need to apply for a Student Visa and must gather the necessary documents to apply.
  • Don't waste electives. Study Abroad experiences can fulfill your elective requirements toward graduation, so don't use up your electives as a freshman or sophomore if you plan to travel.
  • Attend a Study Abroad Information Fair (held each September and February) to learn more about these exciting opportunities!
