As an office, our approach to advising is to offer suggestions and provide the necessary information and support, but we expect students to make their own decisions, complete their own forms, and generally manage the study abroad process themselves. We believe that putting the majority of the responsibility on the student creates independence and builds confidence that will help them to ultimately get the most out of their experience while living and learning in a foreign environment.

As parents and guardians, your student may reach out to you at various points throughout the study abroad process; your support is vital as they navigate these new spaces. But please note that all communication from all our office will be directly with your student so you should always reach out to them first with questions. *
