FROM THE OFFICE OF INTERNATIONAL STUDIES –
This is a reminder about the deadline for the General Wesleyan Study Abroad Application. It is the “permission to study abroad” application that must be completed by ALL students applying to study abroad for spring 2012, regardless of program choice, including Wesleyan-administered programs (Bologna, Bordeaux, Madrid, Paris, Regensburg). The application is usually due on OCTOBER 15 but that date falls on a weekend this year, so the deadline has been moved to MONDAY, OCTOBER 17. This is a firm deadline and late applications will not be accepted.
A copy of the permission application may be picked up at the Office of International Studies or printed from our website at www.wesleyan.edu/ois. Just click on “Applications” in the “Forms” section and print the “Permission to Study Abroad” PDF document.
Applications must be turned in to the Office of International Studies, Fisk Hall 105. A complete application includes the following 7 items:
- Personal information sheet
- Academic justification essay
- Online Health Information Clearance form*
- Pre-approval of courses form
- Student Medical Release and Parental Statement form
- Assumption of Risk and Release and Waiver form
- Standards of Conduct Pledge
*All applicants must complete our online Health Information Clearance form. If you have not already done so, you may still do it now. It is in your student e-Portfolio under “Tools and Links.” Be sure to do this before October 17.
If you have any questions about this application, please feel free to stop by the office during drop-in hours (M-W-F 10-noon; T-TH 2-4 p.m.) or call us at 860 685 2550.
Please note that approved programs (not run by Wesleyan) have their own specific deadlines (many do “rolling admissions” and can fill before stated deadlines) so students should check directly with the programs to make certain that applications are filed in a timely manner.
