Getting Started

1) Begin the Global Education advising process This will familiarize you with the international experiences available and help you narrow your interests so you will be better prepared to meet with a Global Education Advisor. The Advising steps are not tied to a specific program application, but aimed at preparing you for the experience and making a final program selection.

New and Transfer Students: you can only initiate the online advising steps or a program-specific application at the beginning of your first semester attending SDSU.

Faculty-Led programs: you are not required to complete the online advising steps to apply for a faculty-led program (global seminars, course-embedded programs, academic related travel, transborder courses)
2) Meet with a Global Education Advisor or Global Guide
