Spring 2016 Study Abroad Application Available Now!

Greetings from Overseas Studies!


As we near the end of the school year we are excited to announce that applications for study abroad during Spring 2016 are now available. You can stop by our office in THH 341 or email overseas@usc.edu and indicate the program to which you’re applying (be sure to check minimum eligibility requirements listed in the program brochures our website). Get an early start on applications over the summer!

Please see the Application Process section of our website for more information on how to choose a program, obtain an application and for application deadlines.

Application deadlines are listed below:

  • AUG 21: Nanzan
  • SEPT 14: Czech Republic, Germany, Ireland (Dublin), Italy, Japan, Spain, South Africa, and UK (BADA, King’s, Queen Mary, UCL)
  • SEPT 28: All other Dornsife Semester Programs

Contrary to popular opinion, studying abroad for a semester will not break the bank. Financial aid travels with you and program costs are often comparable to staying here in L.A.  Plus, there are a lot of scholarships available! For a full list of scholarships, refer to the scholarship page of our website and also be sure to read our information on costs.

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you soon!
