The application process to study off-campus is two-fold: students first apply to the Office of Study Abroad for permission to study off-campus; they then apply (through the Office of Study Abroad) for admission into a particular program. Students must submit both the W&J application and the relevant program application. Please visit the Office of Study Abroad, located on the ground floor of at 005 The Commons, near the Ski Lodge, for all relevant application forms and materials.
Applications must be received in the Office of Study Abroad by the dates given below. Late applications will not be accepted. All applications will be reviewed immediately following the deadline.
- To study abroad for the fall term or full academic year, students must submit their W&J application by March 1; program applications are due by March 15.
- To study abroad for the spring term, students must submit their W&J application by October 1; program applications are due by October 15.
- Note: there is a petition process in place for students wishing to study on a program that is not on the list of approved programs; petitions are due one month prior to the regular study abroad deadlines of March 1 and October 1. Please email the Office of Study Abroad at StudyAbroad@washjeff.edu for information and detailed guidelines.A limited number of petitions will be approved each term.
Once the student receives permission from W&J to study off-campus, the Office of Study Abroad will submit the student's completed program application to the appropriate off-campus program. The off-campus program will typically then inform students directly of their admission into the program.
