Recommendations

Each student needs the recommendation of a faculty member in order to study abroad. Both our office and CSU-IP rely heavily on these recommendations when evaluating potential candidates.

We would ask that faculty complete our recommendation form and/or send us a letter detailing the applicant's suitability for a study abroad program. We want to ensure that our students are able to handle the academic and personal challenges that come from living abroad, and be good representatives of our university and our region while they are overseas.

Completed recommendations for Sac State Direct Exchange programs can be sent by e-mail to Geoff Fattig, Coordinator of Study Abroad - fattig@csus.edu

Faculty Letter of Recommendation (Sac State Direct Exchange ONLY)*

*Faculty recommendation forms for CSU-IP applicants are sent directly via e-mail through the IP portal and can be submitted electronically

Classroom Resources

In addition to supporting a student's study abroad application, faculty can also raise awareness of study abroad opportunities, and spark students' interests in the wider world in the following ways:

  • Sharing your own international experiences
  • Engaging in discussions of global issues that relate to your curriculum
  • Scheduling classroom presentations by IPGE staff members or study abroad returnees
  • Designing a Faculty-Led program in conjunction with the College of Continuing Education
  • Faculty members can also assist students in identifying potential classes that they can take abroad for corresponding Sac State credit. Students should use the following form when seeking course approvals:
