Create an Online Account
Even before you are ready to study abroad, it is beneficial to create an online study abroad profile so you can communicate with study abroad advisors, get invited to information sessions and presentations, and make the study abroad office aware of your interest in study abroad.

Apply to a Study Abroad Program
If you would like to apply to a study abroad program, you need to be logged in to your account. You can then apply as follows:
Go to the interactive world map or the advanced search to find the specific program in which you are interested.
Click the "Apply" link next to the program name. This will link you to the application process for that specific program.
This is your listing of application status. Look under the "Online Forms" column. There will be two numbers indicating "0 out of X". This indicates how many forms are related to that specific application, and how many of those forms you have filled out. Thus, you need to click on this (0 / X) link and then you will see a list of the forms you need to fill out. Click on the form name and fill in the form(s) completely.
The initial application forms are only initial permission forms for IIT. You will not be able to apply for your term abroad without permission. Permission from IIT to apply does not guarantee acceptance to the program. All application forms for your program will be called "enrollment forms" on this site.
Once you have completed the necessary form(s) for that specific program, your forms will be reviewed and you will be notified as to the next steps in the process.
Program Provider or Host Institution
After you are notified by the study abroad office that you have been "Approved" to study abroad, you will then need to click on the link to the specific program and follow the application instructions for the specific program provider or host institution.
Simply clicking the "Apply" button from this website does not complete the application process. It is your responsibility to make sure you have filled out all required and relevant application and enrollment materials necessary for the program you wish to attend. Be sure to stay in contact with your study abroad advisor and your academic advisor during the entire process.
