Once the completed and signed approval packet has been turned into the Study Abroad and Exchange Office, please allow the office up to one week to review for approval. During the review process, the Study Abroad and Exchange Office will be considering different items, such as:
- The packet is filled out completely and has been signed by the appropriate faculty or staff.
- All locations meet the CDC's and Department of State's travel advisory guidelines.
- The dates of the program fall within only one academic term or session of the academic calendar.
- A proposal has not already been completed and approved by a faculty member in the same discipline for the same session to not create competition of students.
Please be advised that during the review process, the office may need to reach out to you for further clarification on certain items before approval.
Upon approval, you will be notified via email of the approval status, along with next steps, such as the following: faculty-leader orientation, creating a budget, setting a minimum number of students needed to run the program, forming a recruitment plan, and ensuring all information about your program gets listed in our program search database.
