Office of International Education - Study Abroad Programs

Welcome, Islanders! 

For some of who might not be aware, study abroad programs are housed within the Office of International Education. The Office of International Education serves and provides programs relating to both Study Abroad and International Students and Scholar Services.  

Studying abroad can be one of the most enriching opportunities that students can give themselves during their college experience, so we hope that students will take advantage of the different international experiences to explore life outside of TAMU-CC and Corpus Christi, TX! 

There is a lot to learn and understand about studying abroad, so we want to provide students with as much information and guidance as possible before they commit to a program. It's never too early to start researching and planning for study abroad. (The earlier, the better!) So come in and see us! 

Students can stop by in-person at University Center, 226 (Appointments preferred; however, walk-ins are welcomed)

Or, give us a call at: 361.825.3346
