Stempel College Procedure for International Student Experiences
International experiences offer opportunities for enrichment and supplement student learning and future success. At Stempel College, students may have opportunities to conduct research or participate in other educational opportunities abroad. They may find these opportunities through FIU's Office of Education Abroad (OEA), through their programs or faculty, etc.
It is important that students follow university procedures for these experiences and that the college track participation in these opportunities. Students who apply to participate in international opportunities will need to do the following:
- Inform the Office of Student & Alumni Affairs (OSAA) and Special Projects & Initiatives, both at Stempel College, of the opportunity: student name, student Panther ID, program name, program location, travel dates, contact information while abroad.
- Work with the Office of Education Abroad (OEA) to register the experience abroad and arrange for international insurance coverage.
- This includes completing an online application and submitting documents to their office, but students must contact the OEA for the correct procedure based on the experience they will be pursuing abroad.
- This is important for risk management purposes whether or not your program provides insurance
- For more information, see https://studyabroad.fiu.edu/explore-programs/register-other-fiu-experiences/index.html.
- Update OSAA and Special Projects & Initiatives about your experience upon your return.
