What's next? How do I study abroad?

Information for NDSU Students (Not an NDSU student? Click here.)

  1. Attend a Study Abroad InfoSession  Every Monday - Thursday at 4pm throughout the academic year, students are invited to meet with the study abroad advisor to learn the basics of study abroad at NDSU. Study Abroad InfoSessions include information about NDSU's exchange partners and programs, registration, financial aid, traveling and any other questions you may have about studying abroad. This is not a class, nor do you have to register in order to attend. You only need to attend one session. Hope to see you there!


    Every Monday-Thursday at 4PM
