Study Abroad Semester Information Session

The Office of Study Abroad and International Programs is here to help students explore options and plan for a term (or two!) away. The process begins with attending an information session. Students are required to attend an information session as part of the application process and will need to attend a session prior to meeting with a study abroad adviser. Sessions will provide an overview of study abroad policies and highlight different program models available to Pitzer students.
