Process to Apply
Step 1: To be able to apply to study abroad, all students must attend at least one information session during the fall of their sophomore year. Once you attend one, you will receive access to the online study abroad application through WebAdvisor.
Step 2: Complete the online application and submit it. You will then receive an email with the Advisor Acknowledgement Form and you must get your advisor's signature (and your coach's signature if you are an athlete) and turn this form in to the Office of International Programs before December 4!
Please note: We must receive a complete application by the December 4 deadline. This includes the online application portion as well as the signed Advisor Acknowledgement Form.
Any applications received after December 4 will not be considered.
Students must apply by 5 p.m. on December 4 of their sophomore year in order to study abroad in the spring or fall of their junior year.
Please contact the Office of International Programs at firstname.lastname@example.org to get current application deadlines for summer programs and study tours.
