Semester Abroad

An advising session is required before you can open an application. Currently, Penn Abroad is only advising for Fall 2021 Semester Abroad programs (with one exception noted below). Students wishing to apply for a future term should wait to complete their required advising session at a later date.

Advising for a semester abroad program for Fall 2021 is by academic discipline. Note that students should attend the academic session that matches which CREDITS they would like to earn abroad, not necessarily what major they belong to at Penn. Students from Wharton and Engineering may apply to College credit only programs, but should not expect to earn major credit and are required to meet the same eligibility criteria as College students. Students from the College may only apply to College credit programs.

Dual-degree students should attend the advising session for the academic discipline they are more likely to enroll in and complete abroad. Students do not need to attend more than one advising session.

In addition to advising by discipline, Penn Abroad is offering Advising for All Majors sessions for students who cannot attend the times for their specific undergraduate school or are still deciding which credits they would like to fulfill.

Advising for Fall 2021 Semester Abroad programs will highlight the important differences of studying abroad during COVID-19. It is important to review all the risks and opportunities prior to making a decision about Fall 2021 Semester Abroad programs.

Please follow the appropriate link below to schedule your advising appointment. All appointments will happen virtually and may include up to five students. Please arrive several minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time.

  • ADVISING FOR ALL MAJORS (this session will present an overview of Semester Abroad programs that offer credit for College students, Wharton students, or Engineering students. All disciplines are welcome and will receive pertinent information. By attending Advising for All Majors, students will satisfy their advising requirement and do not need to attend an additional advising session.)

  • WHARTON

  • ENGINEERING

  • COLLEGE      

  • PENN ENGLISH PROGRAM IN LONDON (this program has an earlier deadline than other Fall 2021 Semester Abroad programs)

  • HUNTSMAN this is a special, one-off advising session for up to 50 Huntsman students from 2 to 3 pm on Friday, February 26. Huntsman students can also join any COL or WH session)
