International Studies Program - Study Abroad Guidelines
Explore your options: Go to an Office of International & Intercultural Affairs Information Session on Study Abroad: http://www.uaa.alaska.edu/oia .
Meet with your academic advisor: Meet with your academic advisor and the Chair of International Studies to discuss the programs you are considering and how these might complement your on-campus academic program.
Apply for the program: Apply for the study abroad program through the Office of International & Intercultural Affairs. The Office of International & Intercultural Affairs will walk you through the process. The process includes working with International Studies for advising on your program choice and course selection.
Apply for Scholarships: There are local, national, and international scholarships for study abroad. You will work with the Office of International & Intercultural Affairs, and you will want to check with the study abroad program provider as well. Application dates tend to be early-to-mid spring semester.
Integrating Study Abroad into your Major
Academic Petition: Study Abroad must be petitioned to count toward specific International Studies degree requirements. This includes all Study Abroad programming. Please attach a syllabus to the academic petition. In the case that your program does not provide a syllabus, you will want to save all documentation from the program (assignments, exams, etc.) Academic petitions can be found on the UAA Registrar’s forms website.
