Information for Parents

Has Your Student Decided to Study Abroad?

Your student has access to our online Study Abroad Guide, "Once You're Ready," in the Student Content section of this site.

This Parent Content section has information for you to prepare yourself, and to help your student prepare, for this exciting transition.

Though this content mostly pertains to students who are studying internationally, students participating in off-campus domestic programs may find it useful as well. We encourage you to read and discuss this information with your student prior to departure.  

Additionally, the U.S. Department of State has designed a very useful website just for students abroad. This site is informative, easy to navigate, and will be helpful while you plan to send your student abroad.
