Planning Your Trip

We strongly suggest that you start to plan early for your trip – at least one year in advance.

First Steps

  2. Apply for your passport well in advance of your departure date. You can do this at any of the following locations: 
    • Your local post office

  3. Submit your complete application to the Study Abroad Office, prior to applying to your desired study abroad program.
