Global Cougs 101

Get more information about study abroad opportunities available to you and start getting answers to your study abroad questions!

First things first

Global Cougs 101 is now offered only in a self-paced (asynchronous) online format. It should take no longer than an hour to complete (and is likely much shorter than that!).

Completing GC101 is required before you can schedule an advising appointment with a Global Learning Advisor. Advising appointments are available for all program types, but are required only for exchange programs. Make sure to complete all included items and click the “Submit your application” button at the end of the GC101 form to be eligible to schedule an advising appointment.

Through GC102, learn about:

  • The course pre-approval process and receiving academic credit for your study abroad
