Preparing to Study Abroad

Step 1

Meet with Academic Advising

Before applying to a program that has an optional or required academic credit, you must meet with the Director of Academic Advising to see if your participation in the program can serve as a substitute for any classes at The King’s College. Your request to transfer these credits must be approved before your study abroad opportunity begins.

Confirm Financial Aid

While institutional aid does not apply to study abroad programs, you may be eligible to receive federal financial aid if the program has been approved for credit by the Office of the Registrar. If you are considering a study abroad trip, you should consult with The Office of Financial Aid early in the process. You’ll need to meet all of the regular deposit deadlines indicated in program materials even if you are funding the trip with federal aid or a private education loan.
