Parents

Study abroad is a wonderful opportunity for your student. It is also a major step, as it may be the farthest distance or the longest time away from home your child has spent. As students have questions about the process, we are sure you do too.

The purpose of this site is to seek to inform and serve as a resource for parents and other family members of a student considering, currently taking part in, or just returning from a study abroad program.

Thank you for taking the time to research and explore the opportunities and the information available. We have broken the site down into three sections: Pre-Departure Information, Away-From-Home, and Home-Sweet-Home. Please click on the link of your choice in the resources section of this page to be taken directly to the appropriate section. The sections are arranged in a "most frequently asked questions" format.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the staff of the Michigan Tech Study Abroad Office at (906) 487-2160, we would be happy to hear from you!
