Message from the Colleges of the Fenway
Global Education Opportunities Center
Please be aware that study abroad involves two application deadlines - the application deadline for Boston University (the provider of this study abroad program), and the deadline to seek approval from your home campus Study Abroad Director (in order to receive credit for participating in this program).
In general, you will need to inform your home campus Study Abroad Director by the "Application Deadline" indicated below. By pressing on the "Apply Now" button, you will begin the process of notifying your home campus Study Abroad Director of your intent to study abroad. In order to participate in this program, you will also need to follow the application instructions of Boston University, as indicated above.
Keep in mind that if it appears that a deadline date has already passed for the time that you wish to study abroad, you should still make contact with both your Study Abroad Director and the program provider, by pressing on the "Request Info" button and stating clearly your desired dates. While it can never be guaranteed, there are cases when last-minute requests can be accommodated.
