Welcome to the UP Studies Abroad application home page! 

Faces of study abroad students

The program offerings for 2018-19 will be announced soon! 
Keep an eye out later this month for more details.

2018-19 applications will open on September 4 and will be due by 11:59pm on October 15. 


In order to apply, you must:
1) Click here to see a full list of our program offerings (2018-19 details will be available soon!)

2) Once you have decided to which program you would like to apply, go to that program's info page and click the purple "Apply Now" button either on the bottom of the page or near the top on the right.

3) Select the login option "I have a UP Username and Password" and use your standard UP login info (the same username and password that you use for PilotsUP - you should not include "" with your username.)

4) You will then be taken to an application page where you can complete the "Study Abroad Application" questionnaire and request one recommendation from either your RA (if you live on campus), or an employer (if you work), or a faculty member. No additional recommendations are necessary.

Please note - if you enter "" as part of your login information, the system will not recognize you as a UP applicant and you will receive an error message.

Once you have completed the application questionnaire and requested a recommendation, you must click the "submit" button before your application will be considered complete and ready for review. Your application will not be considered until you have completed both the Study Abroad Application questionnaire and the recommendation request.

If you would like to participate in more than one program next year (ex: one summer and one semester program), please submit two separate applications - one to each program.

Before completing the application, please read the following:

Studying abroad on UP programs is a rewarding experience. Accordingly, the application process is competitive and students do not always get into their first choice program. Applications are evaluated on a holistic basis and the student's academic performance, disciplinary record, recommendations and essays are all considered.
