Checklist for Study Abroad Advising

Academic advisers play an influential role in guiding students through their college careers. While PIC consistently sends a message to our students that study abroad is an important part of their educational plan, we recognize that a unified voice from the campus community will enhance this message. Academic advisers can use the following checklist to help advocate for and advise on study abroad. 

 

CHECKLIST FOR STUDY ABROAD ADVISING

  • Have you considered studying abroad? 
  • Have you attended a Study Abroad First Step Meeting? 
  • Do you know where PIC is located? 
  • Are you going to attend the Study Abroad Fair? 
  • Did you know financial aid, scholarships and grants can be used to help cover the cost?
  • Let’s discuss program options relevant to your degree plan.
  • How will study abroad enhance your academic/professional goals?
  • Let’s review your MyPath and highlight credits that can be taken abroad. 
  • Let’s determine how the credits you take abroad will transfer.

Your department can support study abroad students by having a discussion about how credits taken abroad will transfer, creating a major/minor advising sheet or by requesting a presentation on study abroad for your department, classroom or student organization.
