are many aspects of education abroad programs which require students to
plan well in advance and to make a dedicated, timely commitment toward
their personal preparation prior to departing the United States for their
educational journey abroad.
Applying for a Study Abroad Program
must apply for and be accepted to all education abroad programs through the
Stritch International Education office. Students should consult with their
one-stop counselor and major/minor advisors before submitting their education
abroad application packets. It is important to determine well in advance which
semester or summer program fits best with each student's academic path.
Considerations to be made by each applicant should include:
and requirements to participate
international education policies
aid and program cost
applying for a semester abroad program should submit their application packet
by Feb. 1 for
a fall semester abroad program and by Sept. 1 for
a spring semester abroad.
Education Abroad Office located at Duns Scotus 103 and Duns Scotus 004 is open from 8
