Study Abroad Application Process for 2018-2019

(semester and year-long programs only)


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 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 2: Complete an Intent to Study Abroad (ITSA) form

The deadline is November 17, 2017.

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 3: Submit the Study Abroad Application

The deadline for application is Friday February 9, 2018 for almost every program. The following programs have earlier deadlines:

  • Beijing, Lyon, Poitiers and Baden-Württemberg: February 1, 2018

If you are studying in Germany and applying for a DAAD scholarship, the program application deadline is November 5, 2017.

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.
