About Us

Welcome to the Office of Education Abroad at Middle Tennessee State University.

We are here to serve the students, parents, and faculty of MTSU with exceptional education abroad programming. This process is very extensive, so start early!  OEA offers hundreds of approved education abroad program options located in over 65 countries. In addition, our office welcomes new exchange students every year to complete their study abroad program here at MTSU.

It is never too early to begin planning this unique international component of your MTSU degree program. Aside from researching this website, we encourage you to visit us in Peck Hall Room 207, especially during walk in advising hours. We look forward to meeting you!

Walk-in Advising Hours:

Due to COVID-19, we do not currently offer walk-in advising.  Fall 2020 term advising will be held via Zoom, phone, or email.  Zoom is preferred because we can share our screen with you and walk you through the programs, scholarships, and process of study abroad in a format that is visually rich.  Advisors have set advising hours, please see the advising page linked below for more details. Advisors are flexible if the hours listed to not fit your schedule, just ask! 

Walk-in advising (when offered) is every Monday, Tuesday, & Wednesday:  1pm - 4pm*
(*during fall and spring semesters while classes are in session)

Walk-in Advising allows students to simply walk in our office and meet face to face with an Education Abroad Advisor to discuss the various program options, scholarship opportunities, and address any questions or concerns.  No appointments are required or accepted during walk-in advising hours.  Just come in!
