Staying in Touch-Study Abroad - Carnegie Mellon University

Staying in Touch

Students will undoubtedly enjoy their time abroad and become immersed in the host culture, but it is important to remain in contact with OIE while abroad. OIE will communicate with students periodically to check-in, request information, report new university policies, and provide cultural adjustment advice.

The Study Abroad Newsletter Tartan Travels is produced two times a year—mid-Fall semester and mid-Spring semester—and is the primary way the OIE will communicate with students during their time abroad. This newsletter prints student stories and photos, and students are encouraged to Submit Stories and Photos Online.

OIE will also post emergency information and other timely items on the Tartans Abroad front page.

Students who are abroad occasionally need to contact Carnegie Mellon staff and faculty. We have compiled a list of Department Contacts.
Please remember to inform OIE and all academic advisors of updates to courses abroad by completing the Follow-Up SATC Form.

Do not forget to register for classes for your return to Carnegie Mellon while abroad!!
