Program Description:
Non-UD Study Abroad Programs Application 

Students have the freedom to take their education around the globe!   If UD does not have an active faculty-led program or institutional partnership abroad, students have the ability to study through Non-UD Programs throughout the entire world.  Please feel free to visit our office to review hard copy materials from many provider programs, or use the hyperlinks provided below for two major study abroad online search engines.  (Please note, that all outside programs must first be approved by the Education Abroad Office before students are eligible to participate)
For any UD student participating in a Third Party/Non-UD Provider program, this application is a requirement.  There are several on-campus procedures that you need to be aware of and are responsible for, and by working with the Education Abroad Office you will be well-prepared for your study abroad experience!

Financial Aid

  • UD scholarships are not transferable to outside provider programs.  All scholarships will be reinstated when the students returns from abroad, but can not be used for their program.
  • Government Financial Aid, including grants and loans, can be transferable but are subject to award availability and guidelines.
  • If students intend to use their government awarded student aid they will be required to complete a Consortium Agreement with their chosen provider and the Flyers First Office. (The Consortium Agreement can be found within their UD application materials or can be obtained at the Flyers First Office)


  • All program bills will be sent directly to the student or designated recipient listed for charges towards the program.  No charges will, or can be, processed through the University of Dayton.
  • Students will not be asked to pay for tuition, housing, or meal plans to the University of Dayton while away on their program.

Pre-Departure Orientation

Students will be required to participate in a pre-departure orientation in the semester prior to their program participation.
Pre-departure is MANDATORY for all accepted participants and dates and times will be announced within your application as they are scheduled

Third Party Providers may also have orientation requirements that align with their program.  Students will also be responsible for completing any, or all, offerings mandated by the provider.

Additional Information and Things to Consider

  • If you do not yet have a passport, or if it is/or is about to expire, it is advised that you process a new one as soon as possible.  This is documentation that is needed for the final stages of your application for the University of Dayton, and may be requested before acceptance for provider companies.

  • Current World Associate Student Worker in the Education Abroad Office
"Choosing to spend 6 months in France the summer before and the fall semester of my sophomore year has been one of the best decisions that I have made in college. I knew that spending that much time in France would help me to become fluent in the language I love, which it did. What I didn't know was the amount of growing I would do as a person while abroad, and how that would impact my life after. Going to a different country, I learned about new cultures and met people from around the world. I learned that I am capable of doing anything I put my mind to, from having full on conversations in French with locals in to navigating traveling around Europe by myself. I created memories that will last for a lifetime! Don’t be scared of the unknown – push yourself to explore and be adventurous! I can guarantee that you won’t regret it!"

Michelle Ann Saheb, Summer 2015 Participant
The CEA program was an amazing experience and continuously exceeded all of my expectations. Along with the language immersion aspects, CEA offered activities almost every night and led weekend excursions. The advisors really wanted to ensure that you go the most out of your time with the program and were truly immersing yourself in the local culture. The classroom environment was fun and the teachers were all very helpful and my langauge improved dramatically. Other than the classroom time, CEA is so great because it allows you to make friends from different colleges all across the country who you are able to share this awesome experience with.

IFSA butler was an amazing program! It was so well organized especially once we were there! Orientation when we first got there was AMAZING!! And really help us adjusted to New Zealand! Also we had an advisor we could meet with whenever we needed and had weekly meetings with yummy food and monthly cultural trips (all optional but ALL some of the best things I did while over there!) our advisor really cared about us and became more if a mom while over there which is nice when your feeling homesick or missing your real mom!! I can't imagine not meeting the people I met through my program also! I know we will all be friends for a long time! I love IFSA and would recommend it to anyone!!

Mary K Beck, Fall 2013 Participant
AIFS was an amazing study abroad program. They were extremely helpful, answering all of my questions prior and during the trip. They arranged activities for our program and ensured we had the most fulfilling experience possible. I am so grateful for my AIFS program, they are truly my second family and they said "We will always have a second home in Rome".

Maria P Vitale, Spring 2013 Participant
This program is amazing. The people are so helpful and friendly. Take advantage of their offerings and do as much as you can to submerge yourself into whatever culture you enter. I would absolutely recommend Athena Study Abroad Program! Make sure you get all of the program's requirements finished so that you have plenty of time to prepare for your trip. Enjoy the entire process and stay as openminded as you possibly can.

Fall 2015 Participant
Take advantage of the Fridays off and travel as much as you can. Also, leave campus as much as possible. It is easy to get stuck staying in all week, but go into the city even though it is far.

Eric A Brown, Spring 2014 Participant
API is the best third party organization in Buenos Aires. It is big enough to get reservations and make plans, but small enough to cater to every student and have a good group dynamic. Carmen is the best coordinator and really takes care to make sure your whole trip runs smoothly. She is very organized and handles every problem or issue very smoothly. She also is so energized about her job and makes the organization tick. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone looking to study abroad in Buenos Aires, API is the best. Also, Bs As is a very unique "latin american" experience because the culture is very European. Having spent time in Central America, the society and the people are worlds apart.

Kathryn E Anderson, Spring 2014 Participant
I really enjoyed studying abroad with CEA. The program directors were extremely friendly and helpful if I never needed anything during my time in Spain. The program organized many weekend trips which were a lot of fun and very culturally interesting. During the weeks, there were many cultural activities planned around the city as well. I was incredibly happy with the host family I was paired with. I would definitely study abroad with CEA again if I had the opportunity.

Everyone I've met has been extremely nice and made me never want to leave. They are the kind of people that you will miss when you leave. Once people found out I came alone, they were all very willing to introduce me to people they know and invite me it. I couln't ask for better friends.
