As part of the planning process, we strongly encourage students to meet with authorized faculty in their departments and advisors in the Center for Education Abroad to discuss how study abroad will fit in with their academics, interests, and goals.
Education abroad advisors can approve courses for elective transfer credit, but students must seek approval from authorized faculty if they wish to apply study abroad courses toward a major or minor, and if they wish to obtain credit for an internship, service-learning, or practicum.
Assisting a student in planning overseas studies means finding a program that matches his or her goals and interests, as well as answering questions while they are abroad, or helping them adjust after they return.
UR There: A Guide to Education Abroad (PDF) is a valuable source of information for faculty and advisors. Our staff is always available to discuss any portion of the study abroad process. Just give us a call or stop by our office!
