Juniata Study Abroad Application Form
Welcome to the Juniata study abroad application page for Semester/Full Year programs in 2015-16. The on-line application form is one part of the application process. Please see below for additional steps to complete the application process.
For Semester/Full-Year applicants, all documents must be submitted to the Center for International Education by Thursday, December 4. Select a program of first choice and a program of second choice. Your essay for study abroad should provide a clear rationale for why you are selecting both choices. You cannot be guaranteed placement on the study abroad program of your first choice. Many of the study abroad programs are considered limited enrollment (check the program information page) and placement is competitive. The study abroad essay is a key factor in determining why a student may be selected (in addition to gpa and other criteria). Academic recommendation forms/letters from your POE Advisor and General Advisor can help to support your application to a limited enrollment program. Please practice professional courtesy in making a request to your recommenders in a timely manner and by providing full information concerning your application to study abroad. It is your responsibility to follow-up with all of your recommenders to ensure timely submission of forms/letters of recommendation. All application materials – including academic recommendations - must be submitted by Thursday, December 4 for your application to be complete.
