10.3.1. Advising for Study Abroad

Oglethorpe academic advisors and staff in global education serve as primary consultants for students who are interested in any type of global learning or study abroad experience. The global education website provides a starting point and leads students to create a ViaTRM-PetrelsAbroad Portal account to explore thousands of study abroad programs and get matched with the best fit programs for each student’s individual needs and preferences. The assistant dean and director of global education will assist the student to investigate potential destinations and discuss both the student’s qualifications for study abroad and provide guidance regarding the application process for Oglethorpe and any external parties involved, which may include the host institution or a third-party program provider.
