Information for Parents

Has Your Student Decided to Study Abroad?

The Buckman Center for International Education has created a Study Abroad Guide for your student, accessible via the InRhodes Study Abroad Pages.

We′ve also produced a Family Pre-Departure Guide for your use. Click the following link to download a copy: Family Pre-Departure Guide (PDF). This information is also available on this Parents′ site, through the links to the left.  

Though these guides mostly pertain to students who are studying internationally, students participating in off-campus domestic programs may find these guides useful as well. Both of these guides provide information on academic planning, health issues, student conduct and safety, as well as other general issues related to studying abroad. We encourage you to read and discuss these documents with your student prior to departure.  

Additionally, the U.S. Department of State has designed a very useful website just for students abroad. This site is informative, easy to navigate, and will be helpful while you plan to send your student abroad.
