Getting Started

Getting Started to Study, Intern, or Volunteer Abroad
  • Plan ahead as early as possible...As a general rule, you should start researching programs and gathering information 6 to 9 months before you plan to go abroad.
  • Apply for or renew your passport if necessary.  Visit the SDSU Passport office webpage for more information; call (619) 594-3800 or email passports@mail.sdsu.edu with any questions.
  • Research possible programs here in the Aztecs Abroad database.
  • Meet with a Study Abroad Advisor; call the Study Abroad office (619) 594-2475 to schedule an appointment.  See map for location of International Student Center
  • Note: During summer there will be no information meetings or walk-in advising, but these events will restart during the fall semester.
