The Study Abroad Office is interested in working with faculty and other offices to ensure positive study abroad experiences for students in their majors, and to explore the particular needs and opportunities specific to each department. Faculty academic advisors work with the department chair and the Alvernia University Registrar to approve study abroad coursework with students. Prior to departure, they will assist the student in completing a Study Abroad Course Approval form and also a Study Abroad Graduation Plan Form so that the student plans in advance not only their abroad semester coursework but also the semester of return to campus. Faculty are primary partners in ensuring a student's study abroad success.
The Study Abroad Office is available to explore coursework, help identify suitable programs, and to help prepare the student for travel abroad. Please contact our staff at 610-790-1982 with any questions or comments.
