Applications for studying abroad during Spring semester 2021, Calendar Year (Spring and Fall) 2021, Fall short-term 2020, and Winter short-term 2020-21 programs are due at midnight! Finalize your materials and submit your application today!
Some programs may have earlier or later deadlines. Be sure to check the program's online brochure page in My Study Abroad for more information.
If you are planning to study abroad during the Spring 2021 semester, it is recommended that you adhere to the normal study abroad application process by submitting an application to the program of your choice. You will not be charged the $100 fee when you submit your application until that program has been approved to run. If your program gets suspended or cancelled due to COVID-19, a study abroad staff member will reach out to you as soon as possible with alternative options, which may include shifting your application to a different program of your choice, deferring your application to a later term (in hopes that the program will run during that later term), or withdrawing your application completely. University leadership is actively evaluating options for Spring 2021 and all study abroad programs departing after January 15 will be evaluated in August or September.

We encourage you to be flexible in planning for your study abroad experience and reassure you that we are committed to supporting you through the process.
