  • Get to know the students you’ll be traveling with
  • Registering for the courses you will take
  • Applying for visas and completing other necessary paperwork
  • Discuss legal, financial and administrative matters with a university attorney, a financial aid counselor, and a study abroad program officer
  • Hear from study abroad alumni to provide advice on planning, packing, food, travel, etc.
