The Process...Get Started!
Congratulations on making the first move towards your goal of studying abroad! The
experiences you gain through an exchange/study abroad can be transformational and
life-changing. You will learn new things about yourself, about others, and about the
world. We hope that you will also come back as an engaged global citizen and give
back to the UTC community through your new insights and experiences. But first, we
need to get you started... The International Programs Office has simplified the process
of getting started on your study abroad plans with four simple steps. You can find
all the resources you need here on our website to work through these steps.
Step 1: Attend an Information Session
Prior to meeting with anyone in the office, students need to plan on attending an
Information Session offered at various times throughout the semester. Refer to the
calendar section of the website for upcoming sessions.
Step 2: Explore Program Opportunities
Visit the Programs
section of the website to search for approved programs. You can search with the interactive
map, in the featured programs section, or in the advanced search. Plan to come to
your advising appointment prepared with the research you have done and specific questions
on programs you have researched.
Step 3: Schedule an Advising Appointment
Set up an advising appointment with the Study Abroad Advisor by stopping by following
Step 4: Apply to a Program
Applying to a program is specific to each and every program, and most programs request
supplemental application materials that require Study Abroad Advisor approval and
signatures. Guidelines for this process will be provided by your Study Abroad Advisor.
Be sure to note BOTH the International Programs Office deadline as well as the specific
program deadline - you will want to meet the earlier deadline.
