One of the best ways to stay up-to-date and informed about study abroad opportunities at NC State is to subscribe to our office newsletter. By doing so, students can receive information about deadlines, scholarships, information sessions and events, and much more!

Additionally, following the Study Abroad Office’s official Instagram accounts: @ncstatestudyabroad and @packabroadbaton allows prospective study abroad students to gain a better understanding of the #PackAbroad experience by following the posts, stories, and updates from current students studying in a variety of locations.

Walk-In Advising Hours

Exploring study abroad opportunities? Throughout the fall and spring semesters, students can meet with a study abroad advisor in-person on a first-come-first-served basis during walk-in advising hours. No appointment is required. Walk-in advising is intended to be brief, exploratory in nature, and does not fulfill the individual advising requirement for semester/academic year study abroad applicants.

Walk-in advising hours will begin again in August 2022.
