Summer 2018 Faculty Led General App Open

Summer 2018 UA Faculty-Led General Application

This is the General Application for UA’s Summer 2018 Faculty-Led study abroad programs. Once your specific program is ready to accept applications, the UA Education Abroad office will move your application to the program that you have expressed interest in via the Questionnaire in this general application. If you are interested in more than one faculty-led program, we will move your application to your first choice of programs. You will then need to start a second application for your second choice of programs (if you so desire).

If you have any questions or wish to schedule an appointment with a study abroad advisor, please contact the Education Abroad office at 205-348-5256 or or come by 135 B.B. Comer Hall and make an appointment.
