The Office of Overseas Study collaborates with units and advising staff across campus. Academic advisors play a special role in the study abroad process for IU students. Many students indicate that they first heard about studying abroad from their advisor or that they decided to apply based on advisor encouragement. Academic advisors work with students to complete the advising form as part of the pre-departure process (sample of completed advising plan). Review the overseas study advising process instructions for help with this process. Please note: these instructions are program specific and will vary slightly depending on program and advisor information.
On this page advisors can find information in response to frequent questions we receive as well as access the Course Approval Memo submission form. Course approvals for both IU and Non-IU programs should be submitted here. Non-IU memos will be processed by International Admissions in the Office of International Services.
