Study Abroad Advising Steps

- Talk with the student about how credits taken abroad might fit into their Degree Progress Report (DPR) and what types of courses might be best to take abroad, such as general education, major specific, upper level, etc. (If you are not the student’s academic advisor, direct them to reach out to that person to have this conversation).
