Tobin Global Destination Courses
The Peter J. Tobin College of Business offers a range of exciting Global Destination Courses that combine academic learning in business subjects with study abroad components. The application process for these courses differs slightly from OGS's usual procedure. Please click here for additional information and to apply online.
St. John’s Graduate Students
Due to limitations with UIS, graduate students must use our paper application. To apply, print the Application PDF and Course Option form, 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.
Submitted 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.
