Apply for a passport if you don't already have one.
If you do already have a passport, double check your expiration date. Your passport must not expire within six months of the "end" of your program. If you need to "renew" your passport, do so now.

Apply for a student entry visa if your Host Country requires it.
Speak to your Program Provider or Host University to confirm if you need an entry visa for your Host Country.
CLICK HERE to review your Host Country embassy website for entry requirements.

Complete your Course Approval Form.
 You can typically find course descriptions from your Program or Host University website. Use the Faculty Contacts page to connect to your Academic Chairpersons for course approvals.
Confirm that you have international health insurance coverage.
Many health insurance companies in the USA do NOT cover medical expenses while you are traveling outside the USA. Thus, it is crucial to confirm if your current health insurance will cover your needs while living abroad, OR find a supplemental insurance policy that will cover international medical services.
