Study Abroad Advising
Students will work with Augsburg Abroad to attend a Group Advising Meeting. This 20 minute meeting will provide the basics needed to start the study abroad process. It is best for students to plan a year in advance especially if planning on a semester or year abroad.
Augsburg Abroad provides advising to select programs, has an application process, and provides administrative support for registration and billing, as well as pre-departure and re-entry support.

Faculty Role in Advising Study Abroad Students
Study Abroad Credit Agreement Form
This form is required as part of the Augsburg Abroad application to verify that credit can be used toward requirements. The Study Abroad Credit Agreement form lists coruses that the student plans to take abroad and some alternates in case those are not available.
Faculty Advisors approve course substitutions for major/minor requirements and electives. A faculty advisor signature is required even if the students is not doing courses in the major. The Transfer Credit Evaluator in the Registrar’s Office approves all Liberal Arts Foundations courses. The Modern Language Department approves all language courses.
Next Semester Advising and Registration
Students will be abroad when they need to register for the semester following their study abroad. Arrange with the student to have them e-mail you from abroad to release their registration hold. To prepare for this, it is best to do advanced advising for the semester following their study abroad prior to the students’ departure.
