From late October through March, you may not be able to schedule an appointment with a study away advisor right away. Advisors open their calendars for appointments 3-4 weeks in advance, which is why you may not see any availability when you attempt to book an appointment. Please keep checking back, as there are often cancellations, and new appointments will open up through the end of the semester.
In the meantime, please review the following resources on the GEO website that will help answer your questions and better prepare you for your appointment. We strongly recommend that you become familiar with these resources before your advising appointment so that there will be more time to answer your specific questions.
