Application Process

Step 1: Learn about studying abroad.

Attend one of our study abroad information sessions.

Step 2: Check out our programs.

Look into our exchange programs (SJSU Exchange, CSU IP, and ISEP) to see where and what you want to study abroad.

Step 3: Meet with your academic (major/minor) advisor.

Talk with them about your study abroad plans to make sure that the courses you want to take abroad will count towards your degree program.

Step 4: Apply!

Prepare and complete your application ahead of the deadline. Remember to prepare your unofficial or e-transcripts and meet with faculty members for letters of recommendation. If you do not have a passport already, or if it is going to expire within 6 months of the end date for your program, be sure to get a new one now.

If you still have questions about the study abroad process or any of our programs, meet with a Study Abroad Coordinator.

After you are accepted into a program, you will work closely with a Study Abroad Coordinator to make arrangements for your semester or year abroad. You will also take part in a pre-departure orientation that will cover important information including health, safety, culture and academics abroad.

Step 5: Enjoy your study abroad program!
