Application Process

What is involved in the application process?

Please see the How to Apply page for the steps involved in applying to a study abroad program. Students should only apply to one program.  If you would like to know how competitive a program is before you apply, please speak to the regional study abroad coordinator.  Applications often require materials that take time to obtain (e.g. official transcripts, recommendations, etc.) so be sure to start the application well in advance of the deadline.  Once the application deadline has passed, it may take up to 2 months to receive your acceptance decision.

When are the application deadlines?

Program deadlines vary. Check program webpages for exact dates. Many programs, especially exchanges, have varying deadlines.

  • February 25: most summer programs
  • April 25: most fall and academic year programs
  • October 25: most spring, calendar year, winter and spring break programs
