Meet with an Education Abroad Adviser

Education abroad advisers work with a specific portfolio of locations and/or program types and can help answer questions about your program of interest including how other programs compare, the application process, pre-departure processes, and cultural preparation. All education abroad advising appointments are offered virtually using Zoom.

Summer Advising Appointments

If you are interested in meeting with an education abroad adviser during the summer (May through August), please email the appropriate adviser using the table below in the "Find Your Education Abroad Adviser" section. We do not publish advising appointments in Starfish outside of the fall and spring semesters, but we are happy to connect with you via email to schedule a meeting based on our availability in the summer.

Guidelines for Scheduling a Virtual Advising Appointment (during the fall and spring semesters)

  • Find your education abroad adviser in Starfish 
  • Please list the following in the description box when scheduling an appointment:
    • Write the name of the region, country, or program you are interested in
    • List topics of discussion and please be as detailed as possible. For example: application process, costs & funding, travel logistics, health & safety, etc.
    • If you do not write anything in the description box, your appointment will be canceled and you will be asked to reschedule and include a description of your questions/interests
  • Please save the secure Zoom login information for your appointment and arrive on time
  • Advisers often have back-to-back appointments, so please wait in the Zoom waiting room until your adviser is available. We will try our best to communicate with you if we are running behind.
  • If you are unable to attend your scheduled appointment, please cancel it in advance so that another student may take that advising slot
