Your Role as an Advisor
As an academic advisor, you play a vital role before, during and after the study abroad process! We encourage you to learn more about VCU’s study abroad options by reviewing this website and contacting us if you would like to discuss ways in which we might collaborate (including meetings with or presentations for your faculty, staff and/or students).
Academic advisors help to support international education at VCU by:
- Encouraging students to study abroad and offering assistance and guidance through the process.
- Directing students to study abroad resources such as the Education Abroad office and website, bi-weekly General Information Sessions (GIS) and the Annual Study Abroad Fall Fair.
- Discussing study abroad program options with students.
- Approving courses completed abroad by assigning a VCU course equivalent for each class.
