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.

Guidelines for Scheduling a Virtual Advising Appointment

  • 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
