Step 1: Attend Information Session

Check the Upcoming Events dates on upcoming INFORMATION SESSIONS. This is REQUIRED before scheduling your individual study abroad advising appointment with OIE.

Step 2: Explore the Office of International Education's website

Research the selection criteria, how to apply, available programs, deadlines and the required IDS 102X Maximizing the Study Abroad Experience (.25) course. Review the elements you will need to complete for your application here.

Step 3: Meet with advisors - We want to help you discover what works for you!

OIE: Schedule an appointment with an OIE advisor to discuss programs that interest you or to discuss other questions you have about study abroad. See Upcoming Events for any updates on what is available near the deadline.

Academic Advisor: Meet with your academic advisor to discuss courses you may need or want to take abroad. Talk about how studying abroad will fit into your overall degree plan. If you plan to take courses abroad taught in a language other than English, meet with the appropriate WU language department to discuss how the courses would transfer back to Willamette.

Step 5: Consider how you will pay for study abroad

Start a plan for how you will pay for study abroad now!

Willamette financial aid: On all Willamette-sponsored programs, you will be billed regular WU tuition and you may use your WU financial aid. If you have any questions or concerns about how your financial aid will work for study abroad, contact a financial aid advisor.

Study abroad scholarships: Research scholarships EARLY (now is not too early!) to avoid missing important deadlines.

  • Some scholarship deadlines will come before you receive the official approval of your study abroad application.
  • Check the eligibility requirements of each scholarship and contact the scholarship program if you are unsure whether you can apply before you receive final approval from Willamette.
  • Don’t make assumptions without asking! If you wait until you receive your official approval for study abroad, you will likely miss most of the scholarship deadlines.


Check the OIE website - check the Quick links and site links. Attend a General Study Abroad Information Session- offered in spring and fall. Still have questions? contact OIE at
