Resources for Academic Advisors

The ASU Study Abroad Office administers more than 250 study abroad programs in over 65 countries around the world.  Students can study abroad during the summer term, fall semester, spring semester or full academic year.  Participants in ASU study abroad programs earn ASU resident credit and grades for their studies, so that they may maintain progress toward degree completion and remain eligible for financial aid and scholarships.

Academic Advisors can play an important role in encouraging your students to study overseas, helping them achieve success on their study abroad program, and assisting them in integrating the work they complete abroad into their ASU degree program.  Students may be required to meet with you as part of the application process, or they may be referred to you by an SAO staff member – regardless of how the students find you, we want to ensure that you have the resources to successfully support your students who come to you to discuss studying abroad.
