Study Away Advising

Choosing your Program

Are you ready to choose your study away program?

If so, visit the Apply Now page for upcoming deadlines.

If you're still undecided you can use different criteria for comparing our programs, including Faculty-in-Residence, Language Background, and Internship Opportunities.

You can also speak with our advisors—we are here to help.

Remote Advising

While courses have moved online, and BOSP's physical office in Sweet Hall is closed for the time being, please rest assured that our staff is still readily available to support you through the process of choosing, applying for, and preparing for a future BOSP program. Our team of advisors is available to connect by phone or video chat to guide you through the process and help you consider your options.

Drop-In Advising

Since the physical BOSP office in Sweeet Hall is currently closed, drop-in advising is suspended until further notice. BOSP staff are happy to meet with students virtually (either by phone or video) to discuss their plans to study away from campus. Please feel free to schedule an appointment with an advisor below. Additionally, you can chat with a BOSP Student Ambassador in real time using our online chat feature. Simply open the orange chat window at the bottom of the screen. You can find hours of operation on our Student Ambassador page.
