How to Apply
- All students must complete the WSU application online using MyStudyAbroad. In addition, students studying on an exchange or through an education abroad provider program must also complete an application for the program sponsor or university that you will be attending.
- Before you apply for education abroad you must attend a Global Cougs (GC 101), speak with your academic advisor as well as a Global Learning Advisor and chose the program that best meets your needs.
- Applications are due the semester before you wish to participate in an education abroad provider program, though the exact dates will vary depending upon the type of program in which you wish to participate.
The WSU deadlines are included in the MyStudyAbroad brochure for your program. Program sponsor deadline information and application forms can be found in the program brochures or on the program website link provided in the MyStudyAbroad program brochure. We suggest that you submit your materials early to secure your spot, as many programs sponsors admit students on a rolling basis. In addition, it is very important to thoroughly read all documents and print copies of all paperwork that you submit.
The online WSU Education Aborad Application contains a number of important documents—please be sure you completely fill out and submit each one. These documents include both questionnaires and material submissions that can be accessed once you have begun the application process through MyStudyAbroad.
