Please note: Starting the week of May 13, 2024, Discover Study Abroad sessions will be held only on Tuesdays at 12:30 p.m. through Friday, August 2.  Virtual Open Advising will not be offered over the summer, but will resume on Monday, August 5.

  • Discover Study Abroad

    Discover Study Abroad (DSA) is a one-time, 30-minute session that provides an overview of Study Abroad in general and the steps you'll take to find and apply for the right international opportunity. DSA can be completed two ways - via Zoom or via the ICON course.

    Option 1: Zoom session (synchronous)

    Tuesdays at 12:30 p.m.

    Email with the date you wish to attend and your UID number. The Study Abroad office will email you a confirmation. Five minutes before the session, you will receive an email with the Zoom meeting link included.

    Option 2: ICON course (asynchronous)

    Do DSA on your own schedule!

    Once you have completed a Discover Study Abroad session and have an idea which academic requirements (major, minor, certificate, general education, and/or general electives) you want to complete abroad, call 319-335-0353 to schedule an appointment.

  • Apply for a passport

    Passport processing takes months, so don't wait to apply! Most passports are good for 10 years.

    Note: if you have a passport but it was issued before you were 16, you'll most likely need to get a new one.
