  • Your first step is to attend a Study Abroad Info Session. Dates, times, and locations are available here:

  • The next step is to research your program options (Note, all PCSB approved programs for business majors include a part-time internship)

  • If you want to see which courses students on those programs have gotten PC credit for, a historic database is available here:

  • Once you’ve begun researching program options and have attended a Study Abroad Info Session, you can come to Harkins 215 for walk-in hours.
  • Next, submit an application for PC’s approval to study abroad here (due December 2):

Note that you can only apply to one program. You can list a preference for fall or spring semester, but you may not be accepted for your preferred semester. Be sure to have your Four Year Plan of Study signed by your major advisor and get the Financial Statement of Understanding signed by a parent or guardian. Faculty references are required for PC in Rome, DIS Copenhagen, and Civ in London. Simply enter your faculty member’s email address on the Horizons application and a form will be emailed to him or her automatically. Faculty references must be requested by December 2, but they are not due until January 15.

  • In late January, you will find out if you have PC’s permission to study abroad and whether you have been accepted to study abroad in the fall or spring semester. Once you have received PC’s approval, you will apply directly to your study abroad program. This application is typically due the semester before you go abroad.
  • Note: Any student with an incomplete application or missing documentation after the deadline (unsigned Four Year Plan of Study or Financial Statement of Understanding) will automatically be deferred to the spring semester.
