Congratulations on your decision to study abroad! Once your application has been confirmed and accepted by Wofford and your study abroad partner program, you may start preparing for your term abroad. The Office of International Programs requires that students attend all pre-departure orientations the semester prior to going abroad.
Submit a Four Year Planner, a Course Approval Form and your Release for Study Abroad through your online Wofford Study Abroad application page. You will be expected to register for the semester
If your program requires your absence from this campus during January, successful completion of the program will stand in lieu of Interim; however, you will NOT receive 4 hours of credit.
The OIP offers extensive pre-departure programs and orientations designed to prepare students for their study abroad experiences.
Student health, safety, and wellness are essential to having a positive, impactful study abroad experience.
There are numerous resources available for study abroad students from underrepresented and/or diverse identities, communities, etc.
For many students, studying abroad may be the first time they have traveled independently.
Learning more about your program budget, planning for currency exchange rates, etc. are important parts of the pre-departure process.
While students' merit and need-based financial aid will transfer for one semester abroad, there are several scholarships and funding opportunities for which some students may qualify.
Each semester, current study abroad students volunteer to serve as International Programs bloggers.
