Getting Started

Congratulations on taking the first step towards a once in a lifetime international experience through the International Education Center! The steps outlined on this page will help guide you through the process of choosing and applying to a Georgia College study abroad program, so get started and good luck!

1. Attend a Study Abroad information session. This is the first necessary step in making your international experience a reality. In this 30-40 minute session we will cover the basic information that all of our students need to know, including how to choose a program, earning credits on your program, financial aid and scholarships and much more. Information sessions are held Monday-Thursday in the MSU Commons (Lounge by Einstein Bros Bagels) at 2 p.m.

2. Search for study abroad programs by clicking Program Search (Programs/Apply) on the top right side of the Study Abroad website. Be sure to utilize our advance search options to narrow your results so they are specific to you! Also, check out our list of Summer 2014 Faculty Led and Collaborative Courses (Course Handout.xlsx) for ideas on which programs may suit your academic needs best. 

3. Make an appointment with a study abroad advisor in the International Education Center. This is a great way to get advice on specific opportunities, address any questions or concerns you might have, and receive more detailed information about any Georgia College study abroad program.

4. Apply for your program! Go to the information page for the program you've selected and click the "Apply Now" button to login and begin your application. Be sure to carefully follow the directions provided and complete all required application materials.

Non-Georgia College Students

1. Apply for admission to Georgia College as a transient or non-degree seeking student. Non-Georgia College students MUST be admitted to Georgia College before applying to any study abroad program. Students who are not admitted to Georgia College will not be eligible for participation. Admission requirements for transient and non-degree seeking students are available at the Georgia College Admissions website.

Note: Not all programs are open to Non-Georgia College students. Contact the program adviser with any questions regarding eligibility requirements.
