Academic Advising & Course Approvals

During the study abroad program selection process, Italian majors/minors should consult with the Italian Academic Advisor, Allison Frey. Students will also consult with Education Abroad Advisors throughout the program selection/application process, but should refer to the Italian department for academic question and course approvals.  In our department, Priscilla Craven is our study abroad liason.

After selecting a study abroad program, students should meet with Allison Frey in order to obtain specific course approvals. All Italian majors and minors must meet with Allison prior to studying abroad.
