My Applications
This is your listing of application status.



Online forms (0/X): These forms are optional forms relevant to the study abroad process. For example, an online form may be required to appeal for approval to study abroad if the student does not meet minimum eligibility requirements.

Application Form (0/X): These forms are mandatory and must be completed for initial approval to study abroad. There are four types of application forms that must be completed.  Once all mandatory forms are completed, a student's study abroad application will be reviewed for eligibility.

Enrollment Forms: These forms will appear once a student has been approved to study abroad by the Office of Study Abroad and are required for final approval to study abroad.

Evaluation Form: These forms will appear once a student has completed his/her program and are the last forms in the study abroad process.

Click on the type of form in the online forms column, "Application Form 0/4" and the required forms to be completed will appear.

Study Abroad Application Process Instructions
  • Please note you only need to apply to ONE program per term.  Each time you apply to a program, automated emails are sent to different campus departments.
  • To avoid having your name go through multiple departments multiple times a day, use the Study Abroad Research and Planning Guide or stop by the Office of Study Abroad to help you navigate your program options
  • Once you have found the program that suits your wants and needs, you can begin the application
  • If you decide to go on a different program than the one you originally applied for, please contact the Office of Study Abroad to transfer your completed forms to a new program.
  • This will ensure that you do not have to fill out the forms more than once.
 
Application Process through an Independent Program
  • If you are going abroad on an Independent Program through a provider (i.e. AIFS, CEA, CIS), do not apply directly to the independent program provider until you have been approved by The Citadel Office of Study Abroad.
  • Once you complete all initial application forms and our office has reviewed them, you will receive an email notifying you that your application status has changed.
  • When you get this email, log-in to your Abroad Office account to verify your status. Once you do so, THEN, you can go to the provider's website and fill out their application.

If you are approved: Congratulations!
  1.  If you are studying through an independent provider, you may now apply for their program directly through them. Note: Citadel programs do not require this additional step.
  2. Once your Abroad Office status updates from Review to Approved, you will be able to view your Post-Acceptance or Enrollment Forms.
    • These will appear under the Online Forms column on the My Application Tab of your Abroad Office account. 
  3. Your application is not considered complete until you have
    • Submitted all forms
    •  Attended the Pre-Departure Orientation

If you are not approved: Due to conduct or grades
