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

Study Abroad Application Process

(semester and year-long programs only)


Step One | 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 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 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 Fall semester, please contact us to discuss other options.

Note: An application to study abroad will normally be considered only if you have completed all steps (1,2 and 3).

Step Two | Complete an Intent to Study Abroad (ITSA) form

The deadline is 3rd Friday of November

Intent to Study Abroad Form

It is a requirement for all programs, including petitions. Please follow instructions on the form. Again, an application to study abroad will normally be considered only if you completed all steps (1, 2 and 3).

Step Three | Submit the Study Abroad Application

The deadline for regular application is 2nd Friday of February for almost every program. The following programs have earlier deadlines:

  • Petition: December 1.
  • Beijing, Lyon, Poitiers and Baden-Württemberg: February 1.

If you are studying in Germany and applying for a DAAD scholarship, the program application deadline is December 1.

Application Material

All students who submit an ITSA will receive an e-mail from Office of International Programs to confirm receipt as well as subsequent e-mails with more information on how to obtain program applications. If you do not hear from us within one week of having submitted the ITSA, please be sure to contact us to verify your application status:, phone 503-352-1600.

Tuition Balance Policy

Please note that if your program 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.


Please contact the Office of International Programs with any questions.
