Resources for Students
Realize Unlimited Possibilities
Deciding where to study off-campus can be a complex decision, but once a destination has been selected there are a number of steps students must complete to reach their destination. Below are a number of resources that should aid students through this process.
This process can be time consuming and stressful. However, the benefits of studying off-campus both internationally and domestically are rewarding academically, professionally, and personally. The Office of International Education is here to help students through this process. Feel free to contact us with any concerns or questions.
