Completing Your Application
Once you have created the initial program application, you will be logged into the Education Abroad application system and presented with the Program Application Page. This page shows the phases of the application (Pre-Decision, Post-Decision, While Abroad, Returnee).
Carefully read and complete each requirement. Unless noted, each requirement is mandatory.
To return to the application at anytime, login to the Education Abroad application system by clicking on the NET ID Login link on the top of the Education Abroad website.
The pre-decision phase is the first step of your application to the Education Abroad program. Your application will not be considered for review until all requirements of the pre-decision phase have been met, including completion of the course approval form.
- Obtain all of the signatures required for the course approval form.
- Meet with the faculty member listed as program director to establish eligibility and obtain their signature. (If there are multiple program directors only one signature is required.)
- Meet with your academic advisor and obtain their signature. The academic advisor will advise the student as to how the course(s) will fit with his/her major. Upon completion, the advisor of the program will be notified. Depending on the decision date of the program, you may be notified of acceptance immediately.
The post-decision phase comes after your acceptance to the program. When you reach the post-decision phase, you will be presented with new requirements and a commitment button. Carefully read the commitment instructions and commit to the program. You will have 5 days or until the application deadline to commit or your application will be withdrawn. Failure to complete each requirement will prevent you from being permitted to participate; however, you will still be liable for program costs.
While Abroad Phase
Your application will move to the “while abroad” phase on the start date of your program. Please review any new requirements and complete them as instructed. You may also be presented with a link to submit Side Trip details or Incident Reports. In addition, a journal function may become available for you to record and share your experience abroad.
The return phase takes affect after the end date of your program. Please remember to complete the program evaluation. The program evaluation is located in your program application online and is available five (5) days before the last day of the program; the evaluation is no longer available past the final day of the program.
