2. Eligibility for a Travel Course is determined by the faculty leading the program. All freshman, sophomore, junior, senior, and graduate students must meet prerequisites established by the faculty. Students are encouraged to contact the faculty group leader to determine whether they meet eligibility requirements for the Travel Course.

3. To apply, visit the Global Gateway Travel Course page for programs currently accepting applications and open an application for your preferred Travel Course. Once you open an application, the faculty leader will be notified and inform the Center for Global Education who is approved for participation. Once you submit all pre-decision application requirements on your Global Gateway application, you will be placed on the official roster for the Travel Course and become financially responsible for the entire program cost (not just the deposit paid).

If you are traveling internationally and do not have a passport, apply for one now. Passport applications may be completed through most U.S. Post Offices or via the U.S. State Department. For concerns regarding inoculations or visas, visit the Center for Disease Control and U.S. Passports & International Travel Government websites.

4. The application deadlines for Travel Courses are:

  • Interterm 2021 Travel Courses - no later than 4 p.m. Thursday, October 22, 2020
  • Earlier deadlines may apply to a specific Travel Course, and some Travel Courses may close before the advertised deadline date

5. Once you are added to the official course roster, the Center for Global Education and faculty leaders will share your next steps with you.

6. The Center for Global Education will register you in the Travel Course program. Travel tuition and program cost will be billed through your student account by the Student Business Services Office. Students who are registered in a Travel Course will receive instructions from the Center for Global Education to submit the final payment amount and payment method options by 4 p.m. Friday, December 11 for Interterm 2021 Travel Courses.

The Center for Global Education must receive proof of payment before you will be allowed to participate in the Travel Course program.
