The process of selecting a study abroad program is similar to selecting your major or minor.
Begin researching study abroad options by visiting the Study Abroad office  and seaching progams online  at least 6 - 9 months before you go overseas. Even better: discuss your desire to study abroad with your academic advisor as early as your first year on campus so that you can plan accordingly. It is never too early to start this process.
There are many good study abroad programs, and the best one for you depends on what you want:
Prioritize those goals. Consider your long-term academic and professional goals, as well as your on-campus degree requirements. Consider whether a short-term program, a semester, or an academic year program will help you achieve them.
With proper planning, study abroad can help you prepare for your professional life after college and supplement your education in a variety of ways. You may need to take foreign language or other prerequisite courses for your chosen program, or you may need to fulfill some requirements for your major before you can go abroad.
