Study Abroad Advising

The Office of Study Abroad requires all students to attend an info session and schedule an advising session with the Director or Assistant Director of Study Abroad. Our office provides students with tools that will help narrow down choices and help them determine which program best suits their academic goals.  

All students must attend a study abroad info session prior to meeting with a study abroad advisor. After attending an info session and before scheduling an advising appointment, we ask students to fill out a Study Abroad Advising Form.  Before coming in, please follow these steps to fill out an advising form:

  1. View the full list of approved programs.
    1. To search with parameters, visit our Program Search Tool.
      1. Petition Programs can be located by typing in “petition” to the Program Search bar.
  2. Select a program to visit the program brochure page. In the upper right-hand corner, click the “Request Advising” button.
  3. This will immediately take you to a login page, where you will enter your Pomona ID # and password. Once you are logged in, you will be prompted to fill out the Study Abroad Advising Form.

Once you have completed the Study Abroad Advising Form, please email with your weekly availability.  We will schedule an advising session for you to discuss the application process and answer any questions you may have.

Please note: All students applying to study abroad programs must attend an info session and meet with an advisor to access the application

Students interested in submitting a petition for a program that is not on our approved list should research the programs thoroughly before the meeting and be prepared to provide details during the session.
