Change of Deadline
Students interested in studying abroad in Spring 2019 who have not applied have the option to do so by June 1, 2018. Previously, exceptions were made through Sept. 30 for approved external programs. This supersedes prior information provided by the OIP in any form. Students considering program changes are to finalize plans by June 1 also, with exception of withdrawals.
The OIP is excited to announce a recent publication co-edited by our director Nick Gozik, Promoting Inclusion in Education Abroad, co-published by Stylus and NAFSA. This book investigates the topic of diversity and inclusion from a variety of scholarly perspectives and concrete practices. For more information, click on the following link.
