  • Passports/Visas
    • Passports: Students going abroad must have a passport that is valid for the duration of the program abroad. Some countries require passports to be valid for up to 6 months after the date of entry. Students are responsible for determining entry and exit requirements for the location of their study abroad program. If you do not yet have a passport, have a passport that has expired or will expire while you are abroad, we strongly urge you to apply for or renew your passport now. Note: For many of the fall programs, we will need to send the host university a copy of your passport before the end of the winter term.
    • Visas: Students accepted to study in Argentina, Belgium, China, Czech Republic, France (Rennes), Greece, Japan, Russia, or Vietnam will need to obtain a student visa here in the US before the departure date for the program abroad. If you are accepted and will be going to one of these countries, we will be providing information about the compliance process to secure a visa so that you can legally enter and remain in the host country during your studies.
