All students who would like to learn more about the possibility of studying abroad are invited to attend.

Students will have the opportunity to meet with representatives from study abroad programs in more than 80 countries. The representatives include NIU faculty members who direct short-term study abroad programs worldwide and agents from independent study abroad organizations.

All NIU study abroad programs make it possible for students to earn NIU academic credit while participating in a program abroad.

NIU Student Financial Aid Office staff members will be present to answer questions about financial aid and to provide information on grants, loans and scholarships. Representatives from NIU’s Career Services, the Center for Southeast Asian Studies, Center for Black Studies, Health Services and other campus departments also will be on hand.

Students who aren’t able to attend the fair can plan to attend an informative presentation and question-and-answer session titled, “Study Abroad 101: First Steps to Study Abroad.” Study Abroad 101 content is the same at each session, so students need only attend once to learn the basics. The presentation will be offered at 3:30 p.m. every Wednesday and Thursday in the NIU Study Abroad Office, 417 Williston Hall.

Both the Study Abroad Fair and Study Abroad 101 are free and open to the public.
