Study abroad is an integral component of Pacific University’s undergraduate curriculum.

Study Abroad (Semester and Year-long programs)Application Process

Note: An application to study abroad will normally be considered only if you have completed BOTH steps (1 and 2).

Step 1 | Mandatory Advising Appointment

You must schedule and attend an individual study abroad advising appointment with the Office of International Programs (OIP) to take place during the Fall semester. This is an opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have and for us to ensure you are fully informed of your program options, eligibility requirements, and the cost structure of the program of your choice. An advising appointment usually only takes 15 – 30 minutes, longer or shorter as you prefer. If you find that your schedule does not permit an appointment during the Fall semester, please contact us to discuss other options.

Schedule Appointment 

Note: Steve will continue to conduct his appointments virtually during the 2021-2022 academic year to facilitate scheduling, and take advantage of Zoom's screen sharing capability.


Step 2 | Complete Online Application for the Internal Nomination Process


December 1:  Petition
February 10:  All other programs and IE3 Global programs (Spring)

It is a requirement for all programs, including petitions. Please follow the instructions on the form. Again, an application to study abroad will normally be considered only if you completed BOTH steps (1 and 2).

Step 3 | Submit Program Application to Partner University/ Study Abroad Provider 

This is AFTER you are approved to study abroad in Step 2.

Important:  Please note that if your program cost exceeds the tuition cap of $11,000 you will be billed for the excess amount. Currently, there are not many programs that exceed this amount. Please contact us to obtain current costs for these programs.
