Studying abroad for the full academic year
Be proactive! If you are planning on studying abroad for a full academic year, you will need to consult even more closely with academic advisers to ensure that you are staying on track with your concentration/secondary field requirements and course plans.
If you receive financial aid, make sure you visit the Financial Aid Office (FAO) to understand the specific Financial Aid requirements.
