Education Abroad instructions

Step 1: Students interested in education abroad should stop by the International Center (118 St. Clair Hall) or notify Professor Christina Ingoglia, Education Abroad Director. Please email

Step 2: After consulting with Professor Ingoglia, complete and submit the application located in CougarTrack.  All students planning to study abroad must complete the application form. Students participating in a Columbia College Study Tour only need to complete the application.

Step 3: 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 education abroad course proposal may take up to a week to complete. Once it has been completed, the Office of the Registrar will contact you.

Students should work with their academic advisor to inform them of their interest in the education abroad program and to figure out which specific course selections to take. Students at locations nationwide should also inform their location director.
