Throughout the year, the Center for Global Learning has various deadlines for first-year programs and advanced global experiences, as well as for some types of outside scholarships and programs. The following is a non-comprehensive list of the most common deadlines, but the dates may vary by a few days each year, depending upon the day of the week on which it falls. Students are responsible for knowing and meeting the deadlines for their own programs.

For Independent Study Abroad Programs

These may include deadlines for students participating in independent summer, fall, spring or academic year programs (this is separate from ASC faculty-led programs). Please keep in mind that sometimes program or scholarship application deadlines are a year or more in advance!


ASC Intent to Study Abroad Approval - DUE MARCH 1

This is required for all students who think they may want to study abroad on an independent program during the upcoming Summer or Fall or Spring of the next academic year (this means planning ahead!). Completing this application does not commit you to study abroad, but makes you eligible to do so during the aforementioned semesters. It is advisable to complete this form even if you are not sure you want to study abroad, as not doing so will make you ineligible. Keep in mind this form is in addition to your actual program application!

Completing this form involves making appointments with various department chairs and your academic adviser, so it is strongly advised to begin this early. Do not leave it until the last minute.

*Due earlier for some programs that take place in Fall semester.
