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 

When students choose to participate in a program that is not affiliated with the University of Dayton billing and financial aid is altered to align with the provider.  A points to take note of when considering a program outside of the university.
  • 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. 


  • Students must be in sophomore standing

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.

  • Faculty Led French Immersion - Angers, France (Summer 2014)
  • Third Party Provider with API - Grenoble, France (Fall 2014)
  • 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!"

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.

Elizabeth Ann Arensberg, Spring 2015 Participant
The TEAN Abroad program is amazing! The workers are extremely helpful and make the transition into a new country very smooth. The school that I attended was also very awesome because they made sure that you became apart of the New Zealand culture and learned about it. I would recommend this program because you meet many new people, have a life time experience, and broaden your horizons.

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".

Elizabeth Carol Johns, Summer 2013 Participant
This program was so amazing because it gave me the opportunity to experience a country and a culture entirely different than my own. Because I went with API, I did not know a soul in Spain. However, my program was fantastic and I was able to meet people from all around the world. I was placed in an apartment right in Sol, which is literally the heart of Madrid, and I could not have been placed in a better location. My classes and my professors did not speak English, so it was perfect because I had an amazing opportunity to be completely immersed in the language classes. I could not have asked for a better experience, and I would do it all over again the exact same way.

Matthew Benjamin Leff, Spring 2014 Participant
I give the AIFS program my highest recommendation. They provide the best possible opportunity to make the most out of the study abroad experience. They are very helpful during the application process, preparing to leave, and while abroad. The many activities included in the program increase its overall value compared to other, similarly priced programs. From experience, I learned that the AIFS program provides significantly more than other programs for a cheaper price. If you want the most out of your study abroad experience, AIFS is the way to go.

Eileen M Comerford, Fall 2013 Participant
Antioch's WGSE program was one of the most rewarding experiences I've ever been through. I learned so much about women's issues, including general topics like history, theory, psychology, sociology, anthropology, philosophy, racial justice, cultural comparatives, and life in general. I really think this program made me a better-rounded person than I was before. Aside from that, I made so many friends from all over the world, who are so diverse from each other, and especially from the friends I have always been around. My world has opened up immensely.

Fall 2016 Participant
Future students should know that the AIFS program challenges participants and rewards them with unforgettable experiences. Like most study abroad experiences, the elements of culture shock and the language barrier are certainly present, but students should be cognizant of the Russian mentality and some cultural norms ahead of time if they want to fully enjoy their experiences. The most rewarding moments will vary, but from interactions with warm and hospitable host families, to tours of the most lavish palaces in the country, there are brilliant things to discover about both the people and the locale almost everywhere. The challenging part of the program is constantly exercising the language. St. Petersburg is more accommodating than most Russian cities when it comes to foreign speakers, but interacting in another language for months on end is no easy feat, so diligence and good study habits should be developed beforehand to ensure a more comfortable transition.

I thought API was a great program to go through because they planned a lot of the trips that I went on. They organized hotels, transportation, food, tours and activities for four out of the five weekends I spent abroad this summer. It was very convenient to have all of the travel details planned out.
