Reasons to Schedule an Appointment

Study abroad advisor appointments are intended for the following purposes:

  • Application follow-up: after a student submits a UCEAP application, they should schedule an appointment with an advisor
  • Confidential issues: these vary but may include:
    • GPA, academic qualifications
    • Health issues
    • Disability accommodations
  • Complex issues: if the front desk of the International Office is unable to answer student question because of their complexity they may recommend an appointment
  • When the study abroad advisor recommends an appointment

Cancellations

If a student cannot attend an appointment for any reason, a courtesy notice of one (1) business day via email or phone is recommended. Failure to show up to an appointment may risk a student's ability or nomination to participate in a program.

How to Schedule an Appointment

  4. Add your name and contact info
  5. Provide any additional info to help us better advise you
  6. Determine whether you want text reminders and book

Troubleshooting

The main issue students encounter when students add appointments to their calendar is that they appear with the wrong time. This is usually a timezone issue in the student calendar. Here are instructions on how to fix this issue.
