Passport Day

Thurs. Nov. 1, 11:30-2:30pm, GSU Hawk Lounge

Want to study abroad but you don't have a passport?  We are partnering with the Hartford Public Library to bring passport processing on-campus and directly to you!  You will need to bring the appropriate paperwork and required materials, but no need to go to the post office to begin your application.  This event is open to all students, faculty, and staff!

Please note: it is not advisable for winter 2019, spring semester 2019, or spring break 2019 students to wait until this date to get your passport - you should start that process prior to this date, especially if you need a visa for your host country.


Scholarships due November 15

Scholarship applications are due for all students studying abroad winter, spring semester, and spring break 2019 (students participating on a spring program with travel during the summer will apply in April, not November, for scholarships).
