How to Apply

Applications for UMAIE and Augustana-only courses open in early spring. The priority application deadline for UMAIE courses is April 15. The priority application deadline for Augustana-only courses is April 7. All applications received by April  7 (Augustana-only) or April 15 (UMAIE courses) will receive equal consideration for admission. Applications for any remaining spots following these individual program deadlines are accepted on a rolling admission basis until Oct. 1.

Search by program name on the Augustana StudioAbroad portal. Click "Apply Now" on the program description page to begin the application process.

While all UMAIE courses count for general elective credits (4 credit hours) toward the 124 credit hours needed for graduation, many of the options are pre-approved for general education/core curriculum credit and/or major elective credit at Augustana. Pre-approved credit is listed in the brochure listing on StudioAbroad.
