Education Abroad Pre-Departure Agreement

Smeal Education Abroad Pre-Departure Agreement

Having a documented conversation with your academic adviser and completing a Pre-Departure Agreement (PDA) prior to studying abroad will help you make a more informed decision about which courses to take while you are abroad and provide you with a record of the decisions made. Your academic adviser may be able to point out additional considerations for you that are specific to your major or minor.

Being aware of how your study abroad coursework can potentially fulfill your requirements can help you complete degree requirements more efficiently and quickly, helping you to graduate on time.

Please be sure to meet with your academic advisor before completing the PDA. Also, if you have questions regarding completion of the PDA, please contact your academic adviser.

All students should complete a Pre-Departure Agreement and review the Check List before departure.
