How do I apply?

Each student’s application to study abroad includes four parts:

  • Application form: Click Here to apply

  • Advisor Recommendation: Please send this link to your advisor: Advisor recommendation Form

  • Resident Dean Recommendation: Please send this link to your resident dean: RD readiness assessment

  • Interview: Once we have received these three documents, we will contact you for an in-person interview (usually within two weeks but may be longer in case of breaks/vacations)

Notification of Admission

Students will receive notification about acceptance to the program within three weeks of the priority application deadline. If accepted to the program, students will need to submit confirmation materials—see “Next Steps for Accepted Students,” below.

  • Who is eligible to study abroad?

    At Landmark, we love to see as many students as possible experience the adventure of studying abroad. However, there are certain requirements that must be met in order for a student to be eligible. Please see each of the individual program pages for details, but a general outline of prerequisites is as follows:

    All Programs

    In order to participate in any Landmark study abroad program, students be in good academic standing—that is, they must have a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or above. It is possible to apply for a program with a cumulative GPA less than 2.0. In these cases, students’ current class performance will be reviewed as part of the application process. Any applicant who does not achieve a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher by the end of the semester may not be able to participate in the program, and may forfeit the program deposit.

    In addition, each program web page lists “special considerations” based on the program itinerary, logistics, or cultural or legal realities in each country. We encourage students to review these before applying to ensure that they are ready for the challenges presented by the program.

    2000-level courses

    In order to enroll in a program with a 2000-level course, students must have successfully completed, or currently be enrolled in, the following courses:

    • EDU 1001 Foundations in Learning OR EDU 1011 Perspectives on Learning
    • WRT 1011 Composition and Rhetoric
    • One 1000-level course in the topic area of the study abroad course—see program page for specifics
    • OR permission of the instructor

    3000-level courses

    In order to enroll in a program with a 3000-level course, students must have successfully completed, or currently be enrolled in, the following courses:

    • Prerequisites for 2000-level courses (above) PLUS
    • Three 2000-level courses at C or above
    • OR permission of the instructor
  • How much do programs cost?

    Program fees vary, but are usually between $6,000 and $7,000—please see each individual program’s web page for complete information. This is comparable to Landmark College’s fees (room & board) for summer session and January Term courses.

    Fees include:

    • Group flights (usually from New York or Boston)
    • Course credits as described on the program page
    • In-country transportation
    • Field trips and housing
    • Some group meals
    • Travel and medical insurance for the period of the program


    Fees DO NOT include:

    • Individual spending money
    • Passports, visas, airport entry or departure taxes, if any
    • Immunizations or malaria prophylaxis, if necessary
    • Some meals
  • Study abroad without breaking the bank

    Financial Aid

    Students who receive financial aid may be able to apply some of their aid to study abroad, and additional aid may be available. Please contact Michael Mertes, Director of Financial Aid, for more information.

    Global Engagement Scholarship

    Landmark College’s Global Engagement Scholarship offers grants covering up to 50% of a Landmark College study abroad program fee. Details:

    Eligibility: Eligibility is determined by a combination of demonstrated financial need (as evidenced in the FAFSA) and demonstrated ability to make a positive contribution to the study abroad program. Priority will be given to first time international sojourners and those students in good academic standing.

    Application: The Global Engagement Scholarship application is separate from the study abroad program scholarship. The application has two parts. Both of these are online forms currently under construction—please check back during the second week of December.

    1. The online application form
    2. A recommendation from a member of Landmark faculty/staff (other than your RD or advisor).

    Deadline: The deadline for Global Engagement Scholarship applications is the same as the priority deadline for study abroad. All scholarship applications received by the due date are reviewed by a scholarship committee, and decisions are communicated to students along with program acceptance letters.
