happens once my application is complete?
Decisions are made by faculty program committees that
assist in the planning and development of the off-campus programs.
Applicants may be interviewed as part of this process, depending on
the requirements of the individual program.
Notification and Acceptance
The Office of Global Education will notify students of
admission decisions. Accepted students must return a signed confirmation
of participation form and a $300 confirmation payment by the deadline
specified in the acceptance letter. Students who do not return their
confirmation payment and confirmation of participation form by the
deadline may be removed from the list of participants.
Students should apply for passports before or at the
time of application to an off-campus program. The Office of Global
Education sponsors a Passport Night to encourage and assist all students
in obtaining a passport. A copy of the first page of the applicant’s
passport must be included with the off-campus study application.
Program-specific orientation meetings are held to address
topics such as health and safety, cross-cultural adjustment and learning
goals and objectives; topics related to the specific program also
are covered. These orientations are led by Global Education staff,
on-campus faculty coordinators and returned students. A general orientation
handbook and program-specific handbooks also are produced by the Office
of Global Education and distributed to students and their parents.
