Be sure to meet with your academic advisor early on to discuss your study abroad plans, especially if you are going abroad for a semester. Good discussion points include:
- When is the best semester to go abroad?
- What courses in your degree can be taken abroad?
For example, if you plan to take your last history course in Rome Junior year, then you should not take said History course Freshman year in Fairfield. Some departments may have specific recommendations on when you should (or should not) study abroad depending on your majors, minors, and certificates (and combination thereof).
It is always your responsibility to meet with your Academic Advisor(s) and review your major check sheet early on to ensure that you are staying on track towards graduation.
