As you prepare to study abroad, you will find that there are many details you must pay attention to and a long list of things "to do." Be sure to read everything you receive from your program sponsor immediately! The Office of Off-Campus Study & Exchanges has also put this pre-departure information together to help guide you, although your "to do" list will include many other items. Please read through this information carefully and contact your program provider or the OCSE if you have any questions.
Adam Cohen, 2012, submitted an article to the Skidmore News about preparing for a semester studying off-campus. See Preparing for the spring semester on campus and abroad.
