Study Abroad Registration and Orientation

Before studying abroad, you will need to register for classes and attend a mandatory orientation meeting.


To register for classes while studying abroad, you must get your PIN from your advisor and register for “FOREIGN STUDY” for up to 19 credits. You will receive information about the FSTY course number via email.

Orientation Meeting

You will also need to attend a mandatory study abroad orientation meeting during the regular pre-registration week. All paperwork must be submitted prior to this session.

Information covered at this meeting includes:

  • Preparation for the study abroad experience
  • Packing
  • Culture shock
  • Insurance
  • Medications
  • Housing
  • Returning to campus

Former study abroad participants are usually on hand to pass along advice from a student perspective.
