» Application Steps for Travel Courses

students in galapagos 1. Attend a Global First Steps session to learn more, optional for Travel Course participants. See what Travel Courses are being offered on the Interterm Travel Course page or Summer Travel Course page.

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 a Travel Course Program Application. Submit the Enrollment and Financial Obligation Agreement signed by the Faculty, proof of your non-refundable deposit payment, and (if the program is international) a valid passport good for 6+ months following the end of the program or the passport renewal/application receipt. You can submit these requirements through your Global Gateway application, in-person at the Center for Global Education (576 N. Glassell, Mon-Fri 9-5 p.m.), or electronically to globaled@chapman.edu. Once the Center for Global Education receives all of these documents, 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.
