Faculty Directed Program Proposal
Program Terms: Fall,
This program is currently not accepting applications.
Fact Sheet:
Program Advisor: Kim McDaniel
Program Description:
All study abroad offerings must be proposed to and approved by the Office of Study Abroad and Outreach.  This includes any class with an internationally-based component, no matter the duration.  Applications must be resubmitted and receive the necessary approvals each time the class is taught. 

Study Abroad offerings are categorized as either:

Study Abroad Courses--taught and graded by you, usually one class, coursework/class sessions prior to, during and after time at destination, and short (10-12 days up to approx. 2 weeks)

Study Abroad Program--Located at a host institution, taught by you and host institution faculty with a transcript issued by the host school, full-time enrollment for that term, academic instruction/assignments all done on-site, and longer (4 or more weeks in the Summer; at least 3 months Fall or Spring)

Both categories use the same application materials.

Term Selection
The term for your Course/Program is determined by when students receive instruction. 
Class sessions during the Spring semester, travel in May--Spring term 

Class sessions on-site only or after return, travel in May--Summer term

Similarly, January travel can be either Fall or Spring term, depending on when your class sessions take place. 

Please contact Kim with any questions before starting your application.  Proposals submitted for the wrong term can cause delays in processing and development.
