Feb. 23, 2023 LEARNING OBJECTIVES FORM 

The Learning Objectives Form is found in Via, and it is an important document that helps students (1) declare their intent to study abroad and (2) think through their individual goals and objectives for studying abroad. To find the application, you will go to Via, select "Profile,"  then, "Forms."

Students must meet with their major advisor(s) before submitting the form, so they should plan ahead and schedule these meetings early in the semester. Students are required to meet with their major advisor(s) even if they plan to take elective or minor credit while away. If a student has two majors, they should meet with both advisors. After meeting with their advisor(s), the student should submit their Learning Objectives Form in Via.

It is the student's responsibility to contact their study abroad advisor and arrange a meeting.
