Department Chairs & Deans for Study Abroad

Please use this as a guide as you contact Department Chairs or other appropriate faculty members for course approvals. The Center for Global Education will email you to:

1. Indicate that you can start getting official course approvals
2. Inform you of the process for that term

Once you receive that email, you can move forward with obtaining approvals/signatures for your semester or summer abroad. This will likely be in mid- to late October for the following spring semester and mid- to late March for the following summer term and fall semester.
