How to Start

  • Discuss with your academic advisor study-away options and the ideal time to study away. Timing will vary depending on your major, the credit hours you’ve earned and your personal goals. Your advisor will help you identify specific degree requirements that you will need to complete abroad.Once you’ve identified an ideal time and destination, ask your advisor to update your GPS planner.
  • Confirm course equivalencies. You need to be sure the courses you take will count toward your degree. If you are taking a substitute course for a requirement, you will need approval from your school. If you are studying abroad with a non-Kent State program (like those offered through ISEP), you need to meet with both OGE and your academic advisor to determine next steps.
