Study Abroad Office Services

The Study Abroad Office is the part of the Center for International Education (CIE) responsible for sending students abroad as well as receiving incoming exchange students from partner universities around the world. The program coordinators are each responsible for facilitating and working with outgoing students within specific programs. A team of peer advisors conduct walk-in advising for students who have general questions about the study abroad processes, experiences, and program offerings. The office also sponsors many events including the study abroad fair.

International Student ID Card

The International Student Identity Card (ISIC) is your passport to discounts and services at home and around the world. Every year, students use their cards to take advantage of worldwide offers on travel, shopping, museums and more. It is also the only internationally recognized student ID.

You can apply for a card in the Study Abroad Office! To apply, complete the form below and submit it with a color photo (per the size specified on the form) to the Study Abroad Office.(LINK Form)

There are also many other places to use scanners on campus. For example, the Golda Meir Library has multiple large copy/scanner machines available. There is no charge for scanning on any of the scanners and you will have the ability to e-mail files. We recommend that you put them on your PantherFile or USB drive.

The UITS desk on the first floor in the west wing of the library has staff trained to assist with the use of these machines.
