Applying for a Faculty-led Program
- If you are applying for a faculty-led program, you must first find the program on the program search database.
- Once you've found the page, click the "Apply Now" button and log on to the system using your SVSU e-mail address.
- After you have successfully logged on to the system, you must complete all of the material submissions and questionnaires before your application will be reviewed.
- Once your application is reviewed, you will receive an e-mail notification indicating your acceptance status.
Applying for a Semester-long or Spring/Summer program (non-faculty-led)
If you are applying for a semester-long or spring/summer program (through a provider or an exchange school), the application is a multiple-step process.
- You must first submit an application using this site. Find your program of choice on the program search database and click the "Apply Now" button. Log on to the system using your SVSU e-mail address.
- Once you have successfully logged on to the system, you must complete all of the material submissions and questionnaires before your application will be reviewed. This serves as your application to the SVSU study abroad program. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. You will receive an e-mail notification indicating approval once your application has been reviewed.
- Once you have applied using the SVSU site, you must then apply to the provider or exchange program you wish to participate in. Many of these applications can be done online through the provider website. A few of the program applications are paper-based (if this is the case, the Study Abroad Office will, upon request, send your completed application to the appropriate address for you).
- Most programs require an official copy of your SVSU transcript. You can request SVSU transcripts online at https://www.svsu.edu/officeoftheregistrar/records/transcriptinformation/.
- If you need any documents signed and sent by an advisor or other university personnel, please bring them to the Study Abroad Office and allow at least one week for these documents to be completed and sent.
Contact SVSU Study Abroad (firstname.lastname@example.org) for additional assistance or questions about the semester-long and spring/summer program application process.
