Study Abroad Process

You've decided to study abroad. Now what?

Step 1: Schedule an in-person advising appointment with an academic advisor in the Monte Ahuja College of Business Student Services Office by calling 216-687-3729 or by visiting the office in BU 219.

Step 2: Complete your in-person advising appointment! During the appointment, your current program of study will be reviewed, any outstanding coursework you may need for graduation will be identified and your graduation plan will be reviewed. Your advisor may walk you through updated curriculum guides based on your major(s) or minor(s) and you will be provided a Study Abroad Academic Plan

Step 3: Schedule an in-person advising appointment with the Manager of Education Abroad in the Center for International Services and Programs (CISP) Office. Appointments can be scheduled by calling 216-687-3910 or by visiting the office in MC 412.

Step 4: Bring your Graduation Academic Plan to your appointment with the CISP Office and complete your appointment. In this appointment, you will finalize the college or university that you will be attending during your semester abroad and the Manager of Education Abroad will assist you with course selection(s). Any international course selection should include a course syllabus or a detailed course description. This is critical in order to match with CSU courses. 

Step 5: The Manager of Education Abroad and you, the student, will contact all of the necessary College of Business Academic Department Chairs in order to seek final approval for the course selections to be completed abroad. Please use the directory below for your contacts.
