Study Abroad Advising

Students who are abroad go through the same pre-registration advising as they would if they were on campus via email.

Students studying abroad should send an e-mail message to english@umd.edu that includes their name, UID, and registration date. In this initial e-mail, students should also include which classes they are actually taking abroad as they often differ from those listed on the Permission to Study Abroad (PSA)/course approval forms.

They will receive notification that an English advisor will contact them within 72 hours.

The advisor will let students know if they also have a College block. If they do, they must email Paula Nadler in ARHU at pnadler@umd.edu

Advisors will ascertain which courses students are taking abroad and what requirements they fulfill. They will then recommend courses to fulfill students' remaining requirements. This could involve several e-mails between an advisor and student, and students should be aware that their registration block may not be immediately lifted when the advisor first contacts them.
