Contacts and Advising

ACES advising sessions

Study Abroad advising sessions help the student in planning and managing their experience abroad. The focus of the advising session is future oriented where students are in the driver's seat. The advisor will ask questions to help the student develop a manageable action plan. To ease the feeling of being overwhelmed, the meetings will be about 20 minutes in length. A student is allowed to meet with an advisor multiple times as long as the student is meeting the action steps they set.

All advising is currently being conducted virtually. Please contact us at for an appointment. We look forward to speaking with you!
