Global Cougs Information Series

Learn the basics

The Global Cougs Info Series is a great way to get more information about the overall study abroad process. It’s also the first step in getting your questions answered about what studying abroad could look like for you. You may select a session available online via Zoom or in person on the Pullman campus. Register here.

If attending a Global Cougs session via Zoom, you are required to have your camera on and be ready to engage with the presenter about your interests and study abroad goals.

Do not schedule yourself for an info session during which you are unable to fully participate.

  • Discover the different global learning opportunities available to WSU students, at home and abroad.
  • Learn how to fulfill academic requirements with global learning opportunities.
  • Understand how to fund global learning opportunities with financial aid and scholarships.
  • Gain insight and advice from WSU students who have studied abroad.

Sign up

Sign-up must be submitted at least 30 minutes before a scheduled session.

Global Cougs 101: Introduction to Global Learning

GC101 is a 45-minute in-person (30 minutes via Zoom) information session that covers program types, applications, eligibility to study abroad, and how to find the best program for you.

Attending GC101 is required before scheduling an appointment with a Global Learning Advisor. Attending GC101 is not required to open a program application or to go abroad. Attending GC101 is not required to attend GC102 or GC103.

NOTE: For summer 2023, GC101 will be offered Mondays only, 2-2:30 p.m. over Zoom. See the sign-up form below for dates. Email if you must schedule a GC101 at a different time or day.


Global Cougs 102: Study Abroad Logistics

GC102 is a separate 25-minute information session that covers financial aid, scholarships, passports/visas, and how to get academic credit abroad.

Attending GC102 is required during the application process for all academic programs abroad. You can also attend Global Cougs prior to opening an application or beginning the application process. GC102 is not required before meeting with a Global Learning Advisor, though if you have questions about the included topics, it is a good idea to attend GC102 before meeting with an advisor.

RETURNING FALL 2023. Global Cougs 103: On-Campus Global Learning

GC103 is a separate information session that covers opportunities to engage with Global Learning while still in Washington. Topics include the Global Leadership Certificate, Digital Badges, Peace Corps Prep, Distinguished Scholarships, and internship opportunities with International Programs.
