Education Abroad Advising

It is recommended that students who plan to participate on an education abroad program meet with an Office of Education Abroad for an advising session. This meeting should occur at least 6-12 months prior to your program of interest start date.  Additional advising sessions are welcomed.

Students who are interested in an MTSU Exchange Program or ISEP Direct Program will be required to meet with the Director or Advisor of the Office of Education Abroad.  This meeting should occur at least 9 months prior to the program start date or earlier.  The process for these programs is slightly different and has earlier deadlines than other programs.   

NEW! Advising appointments are now available. 

Due to social distancing measures, the Office of Education Abroad will be scheduling advising appointments via Zoom or over the phone and no longer offering walk-in advising hours until further notice.  Email advising is also available. Please click on the Advisor's name for more information about them and send an e-mail to schedule your Zoom advising appointment.
