Important Things To Know...

  •  To be considered, applications must be submitted by 11:59 pm MST on the day of the assigned deadline.


  • The deadlines above do not refer to incoming applications. Incoming international exchange students should instead refer to the section of our website for Incoming Students.


  • Students who meet the priority deadline for Partner University applications receive priority university placements. Because exchange spots can be limited, submitting an application by the priority deadline is ideal for competitive locations.


  • Students who meet the final deadline for Partner University applications will be considered for any remaining exchange spots.


  • Coming soon: Our office will be providing live updates on Chances of Placement at Partner Universities for open application cycles. Please check back to the Education Abroad homepage Announcements for more information.


  • Students who meet the priority deadline for ISEP University applications can receive priorty approval from UM to study abroad; however, ISEP university placements will always take place after ISEP's priority deadlines in February and September. Students must still apply for ISEP by UM's final deadline above to be considered.


  • To determine how competitive an ISEP University is, please refer to ISEP's brochure page for the university in question, located under the "Semester and Prices" section. Check out the breakdown of ISEP's Chance of Placement ratings for more information.
