Some programs we administer are selective, which means we may receive more applications than the program can accommodate. When a program has been selective over multiple application cycles, it will be noted on the program page in My Study Abroad. Otherwise, students will be notified directly if we foresee that a program will be selective for any given term. All applications to selective programs will be evaluated by a committee using a rubric that takes into consideration the applicant’s GPA, academic recommendation, and quality of their short answer responses. In the event a student is not accepted to their first-choice program, we will work with that student to explore their alternate program choices.
Your acceptance into the program will be communicated to you via email one week after the application deadline. Your application status will be updated to “accepted” in My Study Abroad. This designation means that you have been accepted by IAGE and nominated to study abroad at your host institution. You will receive a Program Budget and Confirmation of Participation outlining the costs and policy associated with your program. Your Education Abroad Coordinator will also send an overview of your next steps, which may include a second application from your host institution. Final acceptance to study abroad is not guaranteed until you have been accepted by your host institution. You will have two weeks to decide whether or not you will commit to your study abroad program. If you cancel your participation after committing to your program, you will be held responsible for a withdrawal fee. Review our withdrawal policy on the Withdrawal, Cancellation, & Dismissal Policy page.
