New to Study Abroad? 

No problem! The Office of Education Abroad (OEA) is here to guide you through the process. Here's a simple overview of the steps you'll go through pre-departure:


Students should begin researching the study abroad process and their program options 1 year in advance. This gives them a lot of time to plan their study abroad so that they can budget and fit it into their curriculum.


Once a student has found a program that is a good academic, financial and personal fit, their next step is to apply. All students will be required to apply to the Office of Education Abroad at UNC Charlotte in order to receive approval to go abroad.


Once students receive approval from the Office of Education Abroad, they will then spend the next few months preparing for their departure. The OEA has extensive resources to assist students with the pre-departure process.
