Once you have gone through the process of choosing a program the next step is to submit an application.  Listed below are the application steps for the different program types.

Faculty-led Programs

Faculty-led program applications are either Open or By Faculty Permission.  The application steps for both are as follows:

If the faculty led program is by Faculty Permission only students will need to contact the faculty director directly to discuss the program.  If approved the faculty member will notify the Education Abroad Office and we will open the application for you in AppalNET/Banner Self Service. Faculty contact information can be found by clicking on the links from the Faculty-led program table.

If the faculty-led program is open to all students you will be able to find the application in AppalNET/Banner Self Service.

Once approval is given by the faculty leader or if the program is open the application steps will be as follows:

SUBMIT YOUR ONLINE APPLICATION

  • Log in to AppalNET/Banner Self-Service.
  • Select the "Direct Link to Web Self-Service" using your AppState username and password.
  • Select the Student Tab.
  • Scroll down and click on the "Faculty-led Study Abroad Application Packet*" link.
