Outgoing Advising

In this Section

The agreements with our partner universities abroad provide opportunities for our students to study or research abroad. Following is the process for faculty advising students who wish to participate in these exchange programs. 

Advising outgoing study abroad students:

  • Early planning is advised for Freshman who are interested in studying abroad in their Junior year.
  • During the fall semester, students in their sophomore year research their options abroad and select three top choices.  We encourage them to discuss these options with you.  They must choose from our partner universities listed in this faculty guide.
  • During the research period, please encourage your students to attend the Study Abroad Fair which is the 1st Monday of October from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm in the Student Center Concourse.  They should also be encouraged to meet frequently with the International Center team before applying.
  • Using “CU Global”, sophomore students will apply for their top choice program, within that application there will be a spot to choose their second and third choices, by the deadline in late January for the following academic year.
  • Students must submit Off-Campus Course Approval forms for their first choice school only before their study abroad interview date.  This ensures us that the student has chosen the correct university abroad to fulfill their requirements here at Clarkson.
  • If asked to complete a letter of recommendation, you will receive an email that provides a link to CU Global where you can upload a document or write the letter directly in the system.

Advising outgoing research abroad students: 

  • If one of your students is interested in a research project with one of our partner universities, please contact the International Center. We will contact the partner university directly.  Such arrangements require that our partner identifies a faculty member who is willing to take the student for the necessary period of time, and is willing to supervise their research.
