Study Abroad Application
Before starting an application, please read all the steps below as they will guide you through the application process.
Exchange Programs: If you are interested in a long-term program (exchange for a semester or academic year) you FIRST need to make an appointment to meet with us.
Choose the program that best fits your interests. You can explore the different options here. You will be directed to our main application system and program catalog.
Make sure you read the content on “Getting Started,” which is on the menu to your left. This content provides useful information that will help you make the right program choice.
Once you have selected a program, you will need to begin the application process. If you have not chosen a program, you will still need to start an application for the program that you are most inclined to choose. The first part of the application is the online advising session. This advising session is MANDATORY and the same for all study abroad programs.
To start the application, click on the “Getting Started” button on the program page as this image shows. You will not be charged any fees to start the application process. You will be billed the application fee once you have been accepted to the program.
After clicking the “Getting Started” button, choose "I have a OneStop username and password" and enter your OneStop login information. Follow the steps to create an account. After you create your account, you will be prompted to complete the advising session. You must read thoroughly and electronically sign all the advising session materials, and complete the assessment in order to continue with the application process.
Once you complete the online advising session, you will need to attend an in-person advising session. Please, contact the Office of Study Abroad and International Exchange for more information concerning advising.
After you attend an in-person advising session, the Office of Study Abroad and International Exchange will activate your program specific application. You must complete ALL the pre-decision materials before the deadline. During this phase, the Office of Study Abroad and International Exchange will confirm that you are eligible to study abroad. If you are eligible, we will accept you to the program and notify you to return to your online application. Then, you will need to complete all the post-decision materials prior to the pre-departure Study Abroad Orientation, which takes place during Study Day. You will know if you have completed all your materials if all the boxes are checked off as this example shows.
Contact the Office of Study Abroad and International Exchange at firstname.lastname@example.org at any point of the application process if you need help. We will be happy to help you!

Yes, if you have questions about how to complete the forms, you may contact the Office of Study Abroad and International Exchange or the study-abroad faculty program coordinator.
Study abroad programs require a non-refundable application fee at the time of application. Once your application fee is received, the program coordinator will use it to make travel arrangements on your behalf. Additionally, many programs are offered on a first-come, first-served basis and your non-refundable application fee secures your spot in the program. If you are not certain that you will be able to attend, make an appointment with the study-abroad coordinator or the Office of Study Abroad and International Exchange to discuss any barriers to your participation. Also, make sure to read our cancellation policy.
Students participating in programs to countries where a visa is required should plan to pay all costs and fees associated with applying for the visa. You can find information regarding visas and other facts about countries that interest you here. The Office of Study Abroad and International Exchange is NOT responsible for securing visas. You must be especially vigilant in keeping up with deadlines in order to have your visa in time for travel. You should plan to have a passport at least three months prior to departure. Please be aware that it is necessary to have a passport in hand in order to apply for a visa. You may have complications or incur additional costs if you apply incorrectly. If you do not have your passport and visa before the departure date, you will not be able to board the flight and may have to forfeit participation in the study abroad program with no refund of fees. Non-US citizens may require a visa for any APSU study abroad program and must be aware of their individual travel document needs.
