The Office of International Programs (OIP) serves as the central hub for students who want to participate in the global opportunities offered by Austin College. The OIP primarily facilitates study abroad programs and offers resources for incoming international students.
The OIP is located in the Wright Campus Center, Room 203, and is open for visits M-F 8:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m.
At Austin College, students have the opportunity to study abroad for a semester, a year, and/or a summer to more than 60 countries. The most appropriate options are individualized for each student’s academic needs and interests with the assistance of the Director of International Programs.
Incoming international students can find their home base on campus at the OIP, where resources are made available to make their stay more comfortable and assist in their overall success.
