Welcome to R-MC StudioAbroad, where you can:   
  • Search for study abroad programs using criteria such as region, country, city or term and read short descriptions of each program. Just click on the word PROGRAMS at the top of this page. You are welcome to explore programs to your heart's content at any time.
  • Create a profile to save programs you find interesting; just click on LOG IN/REGISTER at the top right of this page.
  • Apply for semester and year-long programs. Log in, navigate to any program description and click the APPLY NOW button to start an application. Clicking on 'Apply Now' does not submit information to a program provider or a university outside R-MC, nor is your program choice set in stone; it just gets the process started (think of it like the Common App for colleges). If you change your mind, please do not start a second application; the study abroad advisor can make that change for you. 
  • Submit application materials, some by means of an electronic signature, and track the progress of your application. 

Apply for scholarships funded through R-MC. Click on the word SCHOLARSHIPS at the top left of your screen, above the announcements, for descriptions and application instructions. Also visit the Scholarships section of the Office of International Education website frequently for additional sources of funding! 
 
The semester abroad application process has several steps
Step 1: Advising. Create a profile in StudioAbroad, then click on Apply Now (found on any program description page) to start your application. Fill out the advising questionnaire, submit an unofficial transcript, and schedule a time to meet with the study abroad advisor to discuss your unique situation and goals.

Step 2: Apply to the OIE. After you've met with the study abroad advisor, submit your remaining application materials to the R-MC Office of International Education (OIE) through this website. Pay close attention to dates - you will not have access to your application beyond the deadline (if you need access after that time, contact the OIE).

Step 3: Apply to your program provider or host universityOnly after you have been nominated by the OIE to study abroad will you complete the application process for the host university or program provider of your choice.

Applications for Spring 2019 are due to the OIE by August 1, 2018 
Keep in mind that faculty and staff are not always on campus when R-MC is not in session, so it is wise to begin your application before the semester ends. We urge you to meet with the study abroad advisor and request letters of recommendation before exams, since faculty are not always readily available during vacation periods. 

Regardless of the deadlines set by ISEP or USAC or any other program, all RMC students apply to the OIE by the date above in order to be nominated to participate in a semester abroad program. Semester Abroad Info Sessions are held each semester (see the announcements to the left for details). You may create a profile, start an application, or meet with the study abroad advisor at any time of the year. If you have missed a deadline, contact TammiReichel@rmc.edu to see if it is still possible to apply.
