Academic Calendar

Through study abroad, the Global Education Office strives to prepare students for successful lives in a global environment. We suggest early preparation for any global experience, and we ask that students plan ahead by becoming familiar with their academic audits and major requirements. This will enable students the most flexibility when exploring opportunities in other countries.
