Meet With an Advisor

All IU study abroad students must attend an Education Abroad Info Session to understand the basics of study abroad: how to research program options, costs, financial aid and scholarships, and how (and when) to apply to a program.

  • Summer 2024 (May 6-August 2), these sessions are held at 2pm weekdays via Zoom.

Visit One.IU  to access the Student Appointment Scheduler and then search “Info Session” to see Hope Gerber's calendar and to sign up. Students only need to attend this session once.

For Kelley School of Business majors to access the Kelley study abroad advisors, this step is encouraged, but not required.

Students seeking guidance about whether they can study abroad with their particular major(s) should first meet with their academic advisor(s) to understand their remaining degree requirements. Then, students should meet with a program-specific education abroad advisor.

Kelley School of Business Majors: You are welcome to start this conversation with your regularly assigned academic advisor, but you are encouraged to also speak with a Kelley study abroad advisor at this step of the process (search “Kelley study abroad” in SAS to find available appointment slots) to discuss program options, academic progress, and graduation requirements.

Once a student has attended a First Steps Info Session and is ready to explore a specific program, students can meet with an education abroad advisor for a 1:1 appointment. These appointments are for program-specific questions. Note: first-time inquiries or general advising questions are handled through the Info Sessions and will be referred there.

Kelley School of Business Majors: You are encouraged to speak with a Kelley study abroad advisor before you finalize your program choice (search “Kelley study abroad” in SAS to find available appointment slots).

Visit One.IU to access the Student Appointment Scheduler and then search for the relevant advisor. Click on the advisor’s name below to see their advising portfolios.

Students also can contact their School-or College-based study abroad office for unit-based program options:

IUB students may participate in a non-IU program by following Education Abroad’s Non-IU Programsprocedures.

All IUB students must review these procedures before Education Abroad will sign any program approval forms or grant authorization to enroll in an OVST placeholder course.

Non-IU Program Info Sessions are held Fridays at 1pm via Zoom. Visit One.IU to access the Student Appointment Scheduler and then search “Non-IU Info Session” to see Hope Gerber's calendar and to sign up.

Students from IUPUI or a regional campus must speak with their campus coordinator about their campus’ non-IU program policies.
