The OEA staff is working virtually during our regular business hours: Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., for the remainder of the Spring semester.  

The OEA phone line (704-687-7747) is monitored during our normal business hours. Callers contacting our office are highly encouraged to leave a voicemail with their first and last name, phone number, email address, and a brief message describing their inquiry.

General Inquiries

Completing Study Abroad 101 (SA 101) is the first step for UNC Charlotte students to learn more about how to make study abroad a reality. This virtual introduction covers several topics, including program considerations, academic credit, money matters, how to search for programs and more. Many of your questions about study abroad at UNC Charlotte will be answered by completing SA 101. After students have completed SA 101, they will then be eligible to schedule a virtual appointment with an advisor in the Office of Education Abroad to discuss opportunities. Advisors will also be able to answer questions that were not addressed in SA 101.

Aside from completing Study Abroad 101, students are encouraged to contact us at with any general inquiries.

Student Virtual Advising

The OEA will be conducting student advising virtually for the duration of the spring semester. This is to protect the health and safety of both the student and OEA staff. After completing Study Abroad 101 (required), students can then complete the virtual advising appointment request here.
