Our education abroad advisors are still available for appointments during regular business hours and are here to support you through this time. Appointments are now defaulting to virtual meetings online or via phone. If you have an existing appointment coming up, your advisor will contact you with how to connect virtually. All appointments scheduled on or after Monday, March 16th, will automatically be set up using Zoom. 

There will be no in-person drop-in education abroad advising until further notice, but we are holding drop-in advising during our normal hours. Please see below. 

Students seeking immediate assistance should reach out to their education abroad advisor directly, or contact 

Your options to schedule an Appointment: 

  • Attend a virtual drop in advising appointment (Monday - Thursday, 1-4pm). Visit this link to tell us what you'd like to meet with and it will direct you to a zoom breakout room:
