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. For a refresher on Overseas Study at IU, review the back to basics handout from our May 2018 advisor workshop.
In Fall 2018, Overseas Study is beta-testing a new process for the Overseas Study Advising Form with five spring 2019 programs. Please review the detailed instructions for academic advisors to help you through this process.
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.
