      • Second, decide where you would like to study abroad.
      • Visit the Office of Global Education and Study Abroad (Bagby 202/204) and talk with Dr. Widdows about the numerous summer study abroad programs available - and don't forget to pick up the course approval form.
      • Discuss your summer study abroad plans with your advisor and have the course approval form completed and signed.
      • The final step is to have your application completed and turned in by the appropriate deadline - then enjoy your summer program
