Advising for Study Away

You can search and apply for approved study away programs on StudioAbroad, our search engine and application system.

The Center for International and Cultural Education has several advising services to help you understand how study away programs work and how to select a good study program for you.

Note: While in-person advising is not a required step for many of the study away programs, we encourage you to make judicious use of the staff members who are here to support you. For those programs in which advising is required, the application process will include an advising step.

On your own:
  1. Think about the kind of program you want (see Selecting a Program).
  2. Research programs using StudioAbroad, the online system for program brochures, applications, and paperwork.

Study Away Interns. Every year, returning study away students serve in this role, meeting with Gustavus students to review the many program options, explain the application procedures, and guide students through the resources and options available to them. The Interns take first-visit appointments on a drop-in basis during scheduled Drop-In Advising Schedule (which changes each semester). They also schedule follow-up meetings as needed with students who have additional advising needs that the Interns can easily meet. Click here to learn more about this year's Study Away Intern team

Study Away Program Coordinator. In addition to the Interns, the CICE has a full-time Study Away Program Coordinator who works with all students planning to study away on one of Gustavus' approved programs. The coordinator is available to meet with students to answer program-specific questions or to help students make a decision between two or more appealing programs. Schedule one-on-one program advising by visiting the reception area in 110 Carlson International Center or by calling 507-933-7545.
