Information for Parents and Families

The study abroad experience is one that will help your student develop not only as an individual but also build career skills. In today's world all college graduates need the communication skills and resourcefulness that study abroad builds. Students can study abroad as early as their freshman year, depending upon the program!

We work with our program partners to ensure that your student will be supported by professional, experienced staff not only in this country but also by staff resident in the program country as well. Students experience an in-country orientation that helps them transition smoothly to their new environment. They are housed in inspected and approved housing at their host universities abroad and participate in a variety of meal plans or self-catering residences with other international students. Our partner, the College of Global Studies, is a model for safety and emergency response, and your student will be covered by comprehensive travel insurance. 

You are to be commended for supporting your student in planning and achieving this once-in-a-lifetime experience.  The University Life Office has a variety of resources to assist families in planning and preparing for their student's study abroad experience.
