Dear SJU Faculty & Staff, 

Whether you are creating your own study abroad experience or recommending a student for a program outside of Hawk Hill, the Center for International Programs appreciates your dedication and support of students studying abroad. We realize that in many cases it would not be possible without your preparation and encouragement! Faculty members can endorse study abroad by including necessary information on the direct contact methods they use to communicate with students. This can mean adding study-abroad information to course syllabi, course or professor Web pages, classroom blackboards, or general informational emails sent to students. The information could provide details about study abroad in general, specific and relevant study abroad programs if available, and should direct students to the study abroad office if they have questions. Through this method of advertising, faculty are able to simultaneously publicize study abroad and to demonstrate their support for it. In addition, students often hear about the opportunity to study abroad for the first time in your classrooms and offices. That being said, if you would ever like to invite a CIP Peer Ambassador or Study Abroad Advisor into your class or information session to speak to 5-10 minutes about the benefits of studying abroad, please do not hesitate to let us know!

Please view the tabs of the left for resources dedicated to you, and be sure to let us know if there is any additional information you need. 


Center for International Programs

In the event of a larger than anticipated applicant pool, the Center for International Programs may not be able to approve all study abroad applications.  Complete applications from eligible students will be approved on a first come, first serve basis.  For this reason, early applications are strongly advised.  

Students that apply for spring 2015 study abroad by the September 24th deadline, but are not approved due to space will be placed on a waitlist.  In the case of withdraws, priority will then be given to Saint Joseph's University students, students with no prior study abroad experience and students with exceptional, academic circumstances that may prevent them from studying abroad in a future semester.  Some examples include (but are not limited to) class standing and major.

All other students not approved for spring 2015 will be given priority for fall 2015. Deferred applications will be approved pending an academic and disciplinary check during the spring semester.

Applications for spring 2015 will open in August through a new, online application portal.  Our office will send out a campus email about the online application when it opens. All SJU students will receive an e-mail with the link.  You will not be able to start an application before the online application opens.  If you have any questions or concerns in the meantime, please feel free to contact us.
