Contact Study Abroad

The easiest way to contact Study Abroad is by calling 319-335-0353. The receptionist will help make sure you are connected with the right staff person to help you. Study Abroad Advisors typically specialize in a region or country, while also advising for  programs outside their primary region. The Study Abroad receptionist will help students schedule advising appointments with the most appropriate advisor.
