Where do I begin the Study Abroad process?

The Mount Aloysius College coordinators (Registrar & faculty representative) oversee the study abroad process. The first step should be to visit the CISabroad web site. The web site is designed to acquaint you with the process of planning a program that will meet your specific needs. After reviewing the web site, schedule an appointment with the Registrar or the faculty representative.

When should I begin my planning for studying abroad?

The key to arranging a successful experience is careful planning. You should begin by meeting with the Registrar’s Office and/or the Faculty Study Abroad Coordinator in the fall of your freshman year but no later than one year in advance of your departure. Although you are not permitted to study abroad for a semester until your junior year, it is not too early to begin planning in the freshman year.
