What's the process?

Sometimes it can seem like there are a lot of moving parts in the process of going abroad. We're here to make it simple.

1. Meet with your study abroad advisor on campus

Questions to ask your advisor:

  • Who do I talk to about course approval and credit transfer?
  • Does the Study Abroad office have any paperwork or an application I need to complete before applying to ISA?
  • Who do I talk to about financial aid?
  • Are there important due dates I need to know about?

2. Print course descriptions from the ISA website for the courses you'd like to take abroad to get approval

  • From the home page click on the city of interest (e.g. Shanghai)
  • Locate the academic program that you are interested in (e.g. Business & Chinese Language)
  • Click on the dates of the program term you are intersted in (e.g. Aug 30, 2013 to Dec 21, 2013)- this takes you to the program page
  • Click on the courses tab
  • You will see a list of available courses on this page. From here, click on the specific course to bring up a course description

3. Meet with your Financial Aid Advisor

4. Apply for your ISA program

  • Read about the full admissions process for ISA. If your university requires paperwork, make sure to complete it according to their deadlines.

5. Apply for ISA scholarships
