Advising Process

The first step to studying abroad is to attend a General Information Session or have a general advising meeting. During the academic year, at least one session is held on each PCC campus (see below for dates and times). During the summer, we hold one-on-one general advising meetings by appointment. At these meetings you will learn about programs, scholarships, and the application processes, as well as have time for individual questions.

For additional information, or to make an advising appointment, contact an education abroad advisor, Ali Garfinkle or Liz Sinclair, at extension 7117 or by emailing studyabroad@pcc.edu.

See above for upcoming advising sessions and events on your campus.
