My Applications
This is your listing of application status.

Online forms: These forms do not need to be filled out unless special circumstances require you to do so. 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: These forms must be completed and are required for initial approval to study abroad. There are four types of application forms that must be completed.

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
It is important to note that you only need to apply to ONE program per term. Note that each time you apply to a program, automated emails are sent to different campus departments. Do you want your name coming through the Commandant's Office multiple times a day? Probably not. Therefore, 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 find a 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 twice.

If you are going abroad on an Independent Program through a provider (i.e. AIFS, CEA, CIS), do not apply directly to the study abroad 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. You may now apply to study abroad directly through the program provider. Note: Citadel programs do not require this additional application step.
2. Once your Abroad Office status updates 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. Your application is not considered complete until you have submitted all forms and attended the Pre-Departure Orientation.

If you are not approved: Due to conduct or grades

1. You have the option to appeal your initial application outcome. To do so, there is a form you'll need to submit. This can be found under the Online Forms column of the My Applications tab of your Abroad Office account.
2. Your appeal will be reviewed by the Office of Study Abroad and forwarded on to the Provost's Office with a recommendation. Once a final decision has been made, you will be contacted regarding the outcome.

If you have questions about the applications forms or process in general, don't hesitate to contact our office. We're here to help!

Please also note that you will need a passport for all study abroad programs and certain programs will require a visa as well. If you have a passport, check the expiration date to confirm that it will not expire within six months AFTER your return from abroad.
