1. Find your Study Abroad Program Page

Click "Find a Program" under the "Programs" link. On the program finder page, you may search for programs by their location, courses offered, or other criteria. You may also click "List All" to browse all of the programs offered. Once on your chosen study abroad program page, click on the "Apply Now" link. Follow the instructions to create your own personal application homepage by logging in with your University of Memphis log-in and password. NOTE: For all programs except faculty-led, it is required to meet with the study abroad advisor. Once you have met with the advisor, you will be cleared to continue on with the application process.

2. Begin the Application

On your application homepage, you will see a checklist of everything you need to do. There are four types of documents: material submissions, signature documents, questionnaires, and learning assessments. Please click on each document for instructions. You must read and follow all instructions carefully and in a timely manner. Most of the application process can be done online at your convenience, but hard copies of some materials must be submitted to the Study Abroad Office. You will also be asked to scan and upload several documents during the application process. The library and computer lab of the University Center have several scanners available for student use. If you need help scanning, please come to the Study Abroad Office for assistance. There will also be a tutorial with your application materials. If we are missing any parts of your application, you will receive regular e-mail reminders starting a few weeks before the application deadlines. Watch for these reminders that will come from tigersabroad@memphis.edu. NOTE: Application deadlines are firm and you must submit all application pieces in order for your application to be reviewed. To see if you have submitted all necessary documents, review the checklist on your homepage.

3. Log-in and Check for Updates

After you have started the application, you can check your application homepage at anytime. Remember to check your U of M e-mail on a regular basis for reminders of items that you have not yet submitted. You will receive your decision notification through e-mail on the decision date listed on your study abroad program page.

4. Commit to Your Program

After you have been accepted, you will have to commit to your program. You will be notified in your acceptance letter of the commitment deadline. After committing, you will be required to submit additional post-acceptance materials. Only after you have submitted these materials will you be eligible to study abroad on your chosen program.
