International students are welcome on global programs with the Office of Global Opportunities.

Please read the following information on steps to ensure that you have all the paperwork in order before you leave.

Contact International Faculty and Student Services in order to speak with an advisor before you commit to any program.

Consider the following before accepting your nomination to a global program:

  • If you plan to return to the US after your program, you must contact International Faculty and Student Services to verify that you will be eligible to re-enter the country.
  • All international students holding a non-immigrant visa must visit International Faculty and Student Services to receive necessary signatures 4 to 6 weeks before your departure.
  • You may need a visa or other travel document for travel to the country of your program. If you will travel through another country to reach this destination, you may also need a transit visa for this stop-over.
  • It is your responsibility to determine whether or not you need a visa. You can find more information about visa requirements on the website of the US-based embassy of the country you are traveling to. Embassy websites are listed available here.
