Application process

Here is a guide of what to do when planning to study abroad:

1. Find your program

You can research programs by attending our general information sessions, looking at programs online, and talking to an advisor. 

Things to consider:

  • How much does my program cost? For exchange programs, the costs for each program are advertised under the “Costs” section of the brochure page. For provider programs, the costs can be found directly on the program provider’s website. Exchange programs are the most affordable way to study abroad.
  • Can I still apply? All programs have specific deadlines, which can be found on individual brochure pages, as well as by clicking “Deadlines” on our main menu.
  • Is this program right for my major? If you plan on earning credit towards your major/minor, you should review the “Academics” section of the brochure page, consult with your major/minor advisor, and talk to an Education Abroad Advisor to learn if a program is right for you.

2. Apply

Luckily, for all of our programs, the entire application process is online. Once you have found your program, all you need to do is hit the “Apply Now” button on that program’s brochure page.

Please note: You should not apply to multiple programs at once, unless instructed by an advisor. Please apply only to your “top-choice” program.

3. Complete your application

Once applied, you will have your own personal study abroad page which you can access anytime by logging into this website. Here you will find application materials relevant to your program and other pertinent information. You will also receive friendly e-mails reminding you what you have left to complete.

Upon completion of your application requirements, your application will be reviewed for admittance and you will be notified by e-mail of the decision. Please be aware that this could take up to two months after the application deadline.

4. Buy a plane ticket, get a visa, and get ready to go!


5. Go abroad, see the world, meet new people, and have the experience of a lifetime.


6. Come back, tell your friends about it, and watch as they start to wonder why they haven’t studied abroad yet!
