Study Abroad instructions

Students interested in study abroad should notify Dr. Brian Kessel, Study Abroad Coordinator. Please email, phone (573) 875-7625 or (800) 231-2391 ext. 7625, or stop by 207 St. Clair Hall on the Main Campus.

After consulting with Dr. Kessel, complete and submit the application located in CougarTrack. The application form must be completed by all students planning to study abroad. Students participating in a Columbia College Study Tour only need to complete the application. Students participating in a MOSAIC program or any other program that involves receiving credit from another institution must also complete the course proposal form. It will be submitted to the Office of the Registrar for evaluation. The evaluation of your study abroad course proposal may take up to a week to complete. Once it has been completed, the Office of the Registrar will contact you.

The application and course proposal can be accessed via CougarTrack. Students should inform their advisor of their interest in the study abroad program and work with them on specific course selection and impacts; nationwide students should also inform their location director.

Financial Aid Recipients: Contact Financial Aid at about applying for federal aid towards study abroad costs.
