Summer 2022 Advising

While walk-in advising is not offered over the summer, you can schedule an appointment with one of our staff members to learn more about education abroad at Michigan State.

Appointments can be scheduled Monday through Friday by choosing a day and time on the calendar below. We can meet with you in-person in our Advising Center or we can schedule something on Zoom. Appointment confirmation will be sent via email.

To make the most of your advising appointment, please prepare by watching the EA101 webinar. This session will give you basic information about how to research program options, get started with academic planning, and look into finances for study abroad, including financial aid and scholarships. The webinar takes about 25 minutes.
