Attend a group advising session
Ready to take the next step? Our group advising session is mandatory for all students.*
Sessions are held Monday through Friday at 2 PM via Blackboard Collaborate. The virtual group meeting tells you everything you need to know about the study abroad
process including how to search for programs, how to apply, financial aid and scholarships,
and course, grade, and credit transfers. The meeting lasts approximately 45 minutes. Participants that are not signed into
the session by 2:05 PM will be asked to try again the next day to ensure that they
do not miss important information.
Can’t make it to a session?
Students unable to attend a regularly scheduled group advising meeting may send an
email to peeradvisor AT_TOWSON to request a make-up session.
Meet with a Study Abroad Advisor
After attending the group advising session, you are required to schedule a one-on-one
meeting with a Study Abroad Advisor to begin planning your study abroad experience.*
Together you can compare program options and discuss your goals for study abroad to
find a program that suits your specific needs. Don’t forget to have your advising
packet from the Study Abroad group advising session accessible during your appointment.
*Students applying to participate in a TU faculty-led short-term program are not required
to attend a group advising session or meet with a Study Abroad Advisor.
NOTE: Sessions and advising appointments are only for TU students or students considering
earning a full degree at TU. Non-TU students should contact the Study Abroad Office
at their home institution.
