10.5.1. Advising for Study Abroad

Oglethorpe academic advisors and assistant dean and director of global education in the A_LAB serve as primary consultants for students who are interested in any type of global learning or study abroad experience. The student is expected to review the options and policies on the global education website, complete the Study Abroad Interest form-linked on the website- and make an appointment with their academic advisor to discuss how education abroad fits with their academic plan. 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.
