Getting Started

A semester or year abroad takes planning and forethought. Many of your questions will be answered here, but we encourage you to stop by the Office of Global Programs to speak to an advisor regarding the wide variety of study abroad options that you have.  Your school advisors and major advisors can also help you find the optimal way to integrate a term or year abroad into your academic program at Columbia.

The seven links in the side bar will help you get started with:

Eligibility: The specific academic and disciplinary requirements that need to be met for each school before you may study abroad.

Programs: Suggestions on how to choose a program, important deadlines, and how to begin the application process.

Academics Abroad: Information about the credit and transfer process for study abroad.

Study Abroad Finances: Summary of how the payment process works for both Columbia run and Columbia approved programs.

Campus Events and Important Dates: Calendar of important dates including a wide variety of OGP run information sessions. This tab will also help with information regarding important due dates.

Advising Resources: Information about regional advisors, school advisors and peer advisors.
