​If an undergraduate student pursues a Study Abroad program NOT affiliated with OSU, they are still required to enroll in supplemental insurance and have their travel approved by risk management through OIA. In addition, their study abroad program has to be pre-approved by their department (if they expect to earn college credit) or from the CLLC if they are not earning college credit. The study abroad experience MUST be in the target language. ​

Please instruct your referral to email the recommendation letter to cllc@osu.edu by the deadline.​
