Application Checklist

Steps to a successful Study Abroad Application

When preparing for your application and interview, please use this checklist:

 

I have attended a Study 101 & 201 and I went to the Study Abroad Fair to learn more about the study abroad programs and prepare for my study abroad application.

 My personal statement/essay reflects my talents and interests.

In addition to my GPA, I have included in my application and on my resume other activities, clubs, teams, student government in which I have participated.

I have spoken with all of my references and confirmed that they will complete the required recommendation forms. I have requested that my references receive the link to the recommendation via the on-line request form.

I have had someone look over my personal statement/essays.

I went to Career Services to have my resume reviewed and critiqued.

I have completed the online application and paid the $300 application fee* online before the January 23rd deadline at NOON (first-round consideration).

 I have submitted the Signature/Waiver Form (Applicant & Parent signature required) and 2 passport-sized photos to the Office for Education Abroad, located in the lower level of the ASB building, before the January 23rd deadline at NOON (first-round consideration).

I went to Career Services to prepare for my interview with the faculty director.

*This application fee is not meant to deter application.  OEA can set up a payment plan allowing you to spread out your application fee over 3 monthly payments.  Please contact Nicole Clements at nclements@csbsju.edu for further information.
