International Programs

Our International Programs Office is a hub for learning about Union's diverse study abroad opportunities. Throughout the year, we offer information sessions on how to plan and prepare for overseas studies. Your major adviser and other professors can also offer advice about studying abroad, and students share their abroad experiences at regular meetings and lunch-time talks. We also provide information and resources for international exchange students whom we welcome into our community.

If you are accepted, we will be providing information about the compliance process to secure a visa so that you can legally enter and remain in the host country during your studies.
