For most programs, you must complete at least one year of full-time undergraduate study and have a minimum 2.75 cumulative index to apply. However freshmen can attend the Global Passport program and our short-term programs.

Semester & Short-term Programs 

Applications are subject to approval by the student's dean/academic advisor and the St. John's Office of Judicial Affairs. Decisions are usually made within 2-3 weeks of application. Students will be notified of application decisions by email.

Programs can fill early! For example, we’ve found that spring programs tend to fill by the beginning of October and some fall programs by April. However, we will continue to accept applications as long as space is available and create waitlists when possible. Click here for the Waitlist Procedure. Once you are accepted you will need to submit a $250 non-refundable deposit along with your required forms in order to confirm your participation. Please read the instructions below carefully, but contact us if you have any questions.

SJU Undergraduate Students

Applying is easy! Just follow these steps:

  1. Log on to MySJU to fill out the online study abroad application. Click on the UIS tab; choose “Student,” then “Registration,” and finally “Global Studies Application.”
  2. Follow the instructions provided in UIS, including selecting your courses for study abroad.

SJU Graduate Students

Due to limitations with UIS, graduate students must use our paper application. To apply, print the Application PDF and Course Option form (see below for your program of interest), complete both, and submit them to the Office of Global Studies. The Course Option form should be signed by your dean or academic advisor to ensure that you will receive credit toward your course of study.
