Education Abroad

For Parents

A student explores Morocco.

Congratulations! Your student wants to study abroad.

While the prospect of your student studying abroad may be daunting, confusing and sometimes scary, we hope to ease some of your uncertainty and frustration, and equip you and your student with everything you need to know.

The Virginia Commonwealth University Education Abroad office is here to assist, prepare and guide students while allowing them to take control of their own experience.

The first thing to keep in mind is that students should always contact our office for answers to questions. We are a central resource for students when they plan to study abroad and can handle such issues as the registration process, transfer credits, financial aid and general information.
