Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Application!

  • Early Bird Applications are due 31 October. Remember - applying does not commit you but it allows the IPO time to process the applications. Keep in mind, even if they have received your application, if you are a freshman you have to wait for full review until after the semester ends so that you have an NMU GPA.
  • Even if you do not have all the information requested (passport number, NMU GPA, NMU IN, NMU email), complete the rest of the form and submit it; we can add additional information later.
  • Once the IPO has approved your application, the program leaders conduct a final review. Space is limited, so it is best to abide by the time lines, apply early, and make your initial deposit on schedule.
  • If the Program is oversubscribed (15+), the IPO will set up a ranked waitlist.

The payment schedule is set once a final budget has been approved. After your application has been accepted, the IPO will provide you a deposit slip (see "Costs").

  • Nov 15:  $1,000 (includes $150 non-refundable Study Abroad fee)
  • Jan 31:  $1,000
  • Mar 31:  $1,000 (final payment may vary slightly)
