Student Information Regarding Faculty-led Study Abroad Programs

OIE is responsible for encouraging and assisting students in taking advantage of GT's study abroad options. Faculty-led study abroad applicants apply for programs through OIE and must attend mandatory orientations to be eligible to participate. Below is more information on some of the GT requirements for faculty-led study abroad students.

APPLICATION TO GT STUDY ABROAD PROGRAMS 
GT Students: GT students applying to GT Faculty-Led Study Abroad are required to submit GT's Central Faculty-Led Study Abroad Application to OIE. Students can access the application and instructions at www.oie.gatech.edu/apply

Transient and Special Students (Non-GT students): Students from other U.S. institutions may be able to participate in some GT Faculty-Led Study Abroad Programs. These students are categorized as Transient or Special (non-degree seeking students), and thus must complete a different application process than GT students. Please refer all Transient/Special students to www.oie.gatech.edu/transient.

PRE-DEPARTURE
GT students are required to complete the Pre-Departure Orientation hosted by the Office of International Education. The Pre-Departure Orientation consists of a set of online videos and quizzes, which can be accessed through Atlas. This is mandatory for all students, and must be completed by the deadline noted in Atlas.
