FAQ: Application Process
Is there an application fee?
No, we are currently waving the $60 application fee.
Can I apply for two programs which will occur simultaneously and choose program location later?
Standards of admission to our programs are the same regardless of the program location. Students may not apply for more than one program which will occur simultaneously (for example, Spring Semester 2011 in Seville, Spain, and Spring Semester 2011 in Córdoba, Argentina) and should choose a program location at the start of the application process.
Does my transcript need to be mailed directly from my registrar? What is considered an “official transcript”?
Official transcripts are generally sent to Spanish Studies Abroad directly by the Registrar's office, but may be mailed by the student as long as they arrive in the originally sealed envelope which comes from the registrar. Transcripts sent directly to Spanish Studies Abroad from your advisor are also considered official.
Once my application is complete, how long will it take for an admissions decision to be made?
Admissions are on a rolling basis. Once an application is completed it is then passed along to our Academic Director for review. Generally students are notified of their acceptance status within 1-2 weeks of Spanish Studies Abroad receiving all application materials. If accepted, Spanish Studies will send notification via e-mail and an acceptance packet will be mailed as well.
