  • Withdrawal Policy can be found in the Academic Catalog.
  • Passports/Visas
    • Passports: Students going abroad must have a passport that is valid for the duration of the program abroad, and generally, valid for up to 6 months after  the program end date. Students are responsible for determining entry and exit requirements for the location of their study abroad program. If you do not yet have a passport, have a passport that has expired or will expire while you are abroad, we strongly urge you to apply for or renew your passport now.  For many of the fall programs, we will need to send the host university a copy of your passport before the end of the winter term.
    • Visas: Students accepted to study in Argentina, Belgium, China, Czech Republic, France (Rennes), Greece, Japan, or Vietnam will need to obtain a student visa here in the US before the departure date for the program abroad. If you are accepted and will be going to one of these countries, 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.

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 advisor 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.
