Where do I obtain my application form?
Our office has a new system for applying for study abroad programs. Please apply at the link provided below.
If you are applying for a CCSA or ISEP program, you will need to fill out an additional application (provided by the organization) as well.
Filling out and submitting the APSU Study Abroad/Exchange Program Application does not automatically qualify you for the Global Learning Travel Grant.
Cancellation of your Application
After having submitted my application for a study-abroad or an exchange program, what do I do if I find that I cannot go?
Below is our cancellation policy and the online Cancellation Form. Filling out this form will automatically notify the Office of International Education and Financial Aid (in case you have applied for aid). You will still need to notify the faculty member who coordinates the program you have applied for.
In the event that an applicant must cancel his/her planned participation in an APSU study-abroad or exchange program, the Office of International Education must be notified immediately. All application/deposit fees to APSU are NON-REFUNDABLE. All cancellations must be made in writing via the APSU Study-Abroad and Exchange Program Online Cancellation Form in order for refunds to be processed. Should APSU cancel a program prior to departure, a full refund will be issued. Should APSU terminate a program in progress, all program payments to APSU less non-recoverable expenses will be refunded.
Trip Cancellation Insurance
Applicants are strongly encouraged to consider purchasing trip cancellation insurance. This insurance is available through most travel agencies or by doing a web search for trip cancellation insurance. A few suggestions are: AAA, Access America and Travel Guard Insurance (APSU does not endorse these agencies).
Please complete and submit the Cancellation Form.
Can I receive assistance with completing the form?
If you have questions about how to complete the forms, you may contact the Office of International Education or the study-abroad program coordinator.
What is the deadline for applications?
Consult the program's specific information for the deadline of the program of your choice.
Although the deadlines vary, it is best to apply by Feb. 29 for summer programs and Sept. 20 for winter programs.
Should I submit my application if I am not sure I will go?
Most programs require a nonrefundable application fee at the time of application. Once your application fee is received, the program coordinator will use it to make travel arrangements on your behalf. Additionally, many programs are offered on a first-come, first-served basis and your nonrefundable application fee secures your spot in the program. If you are not certain that you will be able to attend, make an appointment with the study-abroad coordinator or the Office of International Education to discuss any barriers to your participation.
Where do I turn in my application for study abroad?
You will submit your application electronically at http://apsu-sa.terradotta.com/
