The Study Abroad Office accepts applications on a rolling basis; however each program or institution may have a deadline for application. We encourage applicants to apply as soon as possible so they don’t miss scholarship deadlines or host institution deadlines. Furthermore, chances of admissions increase by submitting early applications.

This will be obtained at your first meeting with the Study Abroad staff.  In addition to completing the Park Study Abroad application you will be required to submit an application for the program to which you are applying and/or the Host Institution.
