    Important Dates:
  3. Meet with your advisor to plan courses and the time that you'll be away from campus.
  4. Choose your program and location. Once you have received an email confirming that you have been accepted by CU Study Abroad, follow the instructions on your program's website to apply. Pay close attention to deadlines and due dates.
  5. Apply for a passport or visa. It may take 8 weeks to receive your passport, so apply no later than the beginning of the semester before you study abroad!

Read this if you are traveling in Europe! CU Study Abroad will need a copy of your passport or visa.
