Study Abroad 101 & Advising Schedule

Please direct your initial inquires about study abroad to our office at

Study Abroad 101 Info Session

Attending a Study Abroad 101 info session is your first step in studying abroad! Study Abroad 101 info sessions are held daily when classes are in session during fall and spring semester. If you would like to attend a Study Abroad 101 info session during the summer, please email to set up an appointment. Likewise, if you can’t make it to an info session during its regularly scheduled time, please email us to set up an appointment. Occasionally it is necessary to cancel an info session on short notice or during especially busy times in the office, so please make sure to check our calendar before dropping by.

Study Abroad 101 info sessions are held twice daily in our office: Monday – Friday at 10:00 AM & 3:00 PM.

After attending a Study Abroad 101 info session you will receive a copy of our Compass Handbook, which includes necessary forms, as well as guidance on how to select and apply for a program, how to have your coursework transferred back to Georgia State, and how to line up financial aid. You can also download a copy here for your reference.

Meet with a Study Abroad Advisor

Study Abroad Advisors are here to guide you through the entire study abroad process, from choosing a program and applying to scholarships to making sure your credits transfer in and readjusting to life back on campus when you return. After you attend a Study Abroad 101 session to learn the basics about studying abroad, you are eligible to come in to meet with a Study Abroad Advisor during walk-in advising hours. We have walk-in advising hours Tuesday-Thursday from 9:00 – noon & 1:00 – 5:00 PM. On Mondays and Fridays we are available if you have quick questions and help with paperwork, but not for individual advising. If you’d like to speak with a specific advisor, please make sure to stop by during their advising hours because they are unavailable to meet with you at other times. You can also email an advisor to set up an appointment if you can’t make it during their advising hours.
