Office of Education Abroad (OEA) staff are happy to meet with students to assist them through the study abroad process. Students can speak with an OEA advisor in one of two ways: during a scheduled appointment or during drop-in advising hours. The OEA does not accept walk-ins outside of drop-in hours. Please note that OEA front desk staff cannot answer specific questions about study abroad or the application process.
