UA Study Abroad Announces New Approach to Advising

UA Study Abroad is excited to announce a new advising approach that will better serve students, academic advisors, departments, colleges, and valued international partners. 

  1. UA Faculty-Led Programs: Each college will now have one specific coordinator who will act as its point person for UA Faculty-Led Programs.
  2. Exchange and Third-Party Provider Programs: We will have a separate team devoted to Exchange and Third-Party Provider Programs, divided by a program’s geographic region.

The accompanying training will be complete by mid-semester. Please view the charts below to determine which coordinator will advise for each college. We hope this delivers a more seamless experience to everyone involved – ultimately providing more students with the life-changing opportunity to study abroad!
