Planning

The time to start is now

Plan early

A lot goes into planning your study abroad experience, so be sure to start early. Ideally, you should start planning one year before going abroad. Tell your advisor now that you are thinking about going abroad, and start planning your required courses accordingly. It is never too early to start! Make an appointment with your advisor in the Carson College of Business Center for Student Success.

Next Steps to Take to Study Abroad

  1. Attend a Global Cougs 101 Session in the Global Learning Office
  2. Schedule a meeting with your Global Learning Advisor
  3. Meet with your Academic Advisor
  4. Attend any Carson College of Business Study Abroad Information Sessions for programs of interest. Check out all upcoming International Experience information sessions here

Choose your program

Evaluate the many program choices and determine what will fit best into your academic plan. For guidance, work closely with your academic advisor and your Global Learning Advisor.

As a Carson College student, you have a unique opportunity to participate in faculty-led programs: WSU courses, taught by WSU professors to WSU students abroad.

Financial considerations

Don’t let financial concerns deter you from exploring study abroad opportunities. You may be eligible for financial aid, as well as Carson College of Business study abroad scholarships, WSU study abroad scholarships, and outside scholarships.
