Get Started Sessions provide the basic information necessary for students to begin the study abroad program selection and application process. Attendance at one of these sessions is required of all students who want to study abroad on a semester/academic year program. Students must attend a Get Started Session before they can meet with a study abroad adviser.

NOTE: Get Started Sessions are not required for the spring engineering or winter/summer Lafayette faculty-led programs.

When Should You Attend? 

It is advisable to attend a GSS just as you are beginning to consider your study abroad options. Sessions focus on how to select a program, important policies /procedures, and the application timeline. These topics are best explored as early as possible in the study abroad process.

Get Started Session Schedule
