Students should complete an application online. Please apply online at www.studyabroad.purdue.edu. Click on 'Program Search' found under 'Programs' on the top navigation bar. Search for your program. You will see 'Program Search Results'. Click the blue lettering of your program. You will see 'Program Details'. Click the blue lettering saying 'Click here to apply for this program'.
After a completed online application, students are selected for a program in order the application was received. Some programs fill up fast, so the application should be turned in as soon as possible.
After the application deadline, students are contacted through the mail of their acceptance into the program. In the acceptance letter, students are asked to turn in a $300 deposit (check or money order - no cash accepted) and sign an agreement form by a certain deadline. The $300 deposit goes towards the program fee.
Once a student accepts the offer by turning in the agreement form and the $300 deposit, students might have two orientation sessions. The first orientation session covers basic information and forms that are required. The second orientation explains the health, safety and security of the program.
