Steps to Study Abroad

  • Attend a 30-minute "Study Abroad 101" info session through Pace Education Abroad (to learn about the process).
  • Research study abroad programs in the Pace Study Abroad database
  • Optional: meet with a "PAL" (Pace students who have studied abroad) at Education Abroad for one-on-one peer advising, if you have questions.
  • Meet with your Academic Advisor (to review your academic track, class flexibility, and plans to study abroad in relation to your graduation & major/minor requirements).
  • Apply for your chosen study abroad program through Pace (via the blue "Apply Now" button), and wait to be notified by Education Abroad. Pace academic credits for study abroad will only be awarded to students who have applied and been accepted to study abroad by Pace Education Abroad.
  • After you submit your Pace study abroad application, attend a "Study Abroad 102" info session (N/A for faculty-led programs) - where you will research classes on the host school's/program's website and practice completing course approval forms ("credit equivalencies").
  • If accepted into your study abroad program:
    • You will then be required to apply to the foreign host institution directly. Follow the instructions sent to you by the Education Abroad office on next steps.
    • Complete your course approval forms ("credit equivalencies"). All courses taken abroad must be approved by the relevant Pace department chair. Pace students must take a minimum of 12 U.S. credits during each semester abroad.
    • Apply for a visa (if applicable) and book your flight.
    • Attend a mandatory pre-departure orientation at Pace Education Abroad.

Spring 2021 Programs

Attend a Study Abroad 101/102 Info Session

Students are required to attend both an Abroad 101 & Abroad 102 session during the semester prior to a term abroad - to understand the process and responsibilities. Each information session is 30 minutes. See below for days/times of these regularly-scheduled sessions. (If you're unable to come at any regularly scheduled sessions, email the Study Abroad Office with your availability to set up your preferred time.)

Abroad 101 sessions explore the basics of going abroad:

  • Short-term, semester, and year program options
  • Financial Aid & Scholarships
  • Registration and how to apply 

Abroad 102 sessions (for students who have already started an application for study abroad) will learn about how to obtain Pace credits for courses taken abroad:

  • How to make Course Equivalency Forms for the courses you will take abroad
  • Bring a laptop to Abroad 102 so you can practice making a Course Equivalency Form!

Students are required to attend both an Abroad 101 & Abroad 102 session prior to meeting with a Study Abroad Advisor.

Note: Attendance must have been within 6 months prior to study abroad. If your last attendance at either an Abroad 101 or 102 was more than 6 months prior to your program, you will need to re-attend in order to re-familiarize yourself with the process.

All PALs are returned study abroad students who are eager to share their experiences with you! PALs can help you with learning more about program options; deciding on a program; applying; understanding the study abroad process at Pace; and, travel/packing tips. PALs may refer you to our professional advising staff and can help you make an appointment for questions that go into specifics beyond peer advising.
