Using the Online Application System
Applying to Go Abroad: Using the Online Application SystemStudents apply through the Off-Campus Study website for permission to participate in the Swarthmore College Semester/Year Abroad Program. Students are also responsible for completing, on their own, the relevant applications for the specific programs they are interested in.
Once you have chosen a first choice program, you will submit your application through that program's brochure page on the Off-Campus Study website by clicking on the Apply Now button on the brochure page for the selected program. DO NOT start an application until you have decided that you definitely intend to study abroad and you have made a final decision about the program to which you want to apply. Applications are only accepted during open application cycles. Students can apply for up to two programs. If students want to apply to additional programs they must discuss this option with an advisor in the Off-Campus Study Office.
By clicking "apply now" on your program of choice and logging in, you will start an actual application. You will then need to complete and submit several sections.
You can start the application, save your work, and return to it at a later time.
