Third-Party Provider Checklist

Getting Started with OIP

Your journey to a study abroad program begins at Seton Hall!

  • Research Destination: Familiarize yourself with different Third-Party Providers to help you decide which program is appropriate to your academic and personal goals, as well as which provider would help you best achieve these goals.
  • Join a Study Abroad Info Session: The Study Abroad team is here to assist you with any questions and concerns you have about the study abroad process with a provider outside of Seton Hall. Click here to register.
  • Meet with Your Advisor: Make sure to check if you are eligible to study abroad with your academic advisor and discuss with them what programs and providers would work best with your degree requirements.
  • Disability Student Services: Students with health concerns and disabilities are encouraged to communicate with the Office of Disability Support Services regarding their interest in studying abroad. Click here to learn more about Accessibility Abroad.
  • Understand Tuition & Financial Aid: Seton Hall University tuition does not transfer over to Third-Party Providers. Students participating in a third-party program will have to pay separate tuition from the provider and will have to pay certain fees in order to maintain their Bursar account with Seton Hall.
