How to explore your options before your appointment

To prepare to explore your study abroad options, we recommend the following steps:

  • Consult the Getting started section of the Study Abroad website and start to think about the questions posed.
  • Familiarize yourself with the Find a program feature and read through a few program brochures that are of initial interest.
  • Fill out the Advising Brainstorming Worksheet – this tool can help you begin thinking about what kind of program might be right for you. Bring this worksheet with you to an advising session.
