General Advising


Are you ready to start your study abroad journey? We strongly suggest you begin the planning process as early as possible.  Before scheduling an advising appointment, we suggest performing a self-assessment. This includes:
  1. Meeting with your academic advisor to decide what remaining coursework may be taken abroad
  2. Evaluating your existing financial resources and financial aid dependence
  3. Considering the program duration and location that best suits your needs and goals 
Check out our Student Interest Form for additional items to consider when completing your self-assessment. Once you have conducted a self-assessment, your next step is to attend a Study Abroad 101 session.


Study Abroad 101

Attend a Study Abroad 101 information session presented by a UCF Abroad advisor. In this one-hour session, we will discuss what UCF Abroad does as well as how to select, apply and finance a program that works best for you.

We encourage students to attend a Study Abroad 101 session before applying to a program. However, we welcome students who have already applied to a program and want more information. Please RSVP below, as spots may be limited.
