Application Steps

Semester students should apply the semester before they go abroad. Summer students should apply as early as October or November. All programs have limited enrollment, so apply early!

  1. Search for your program and “Complete Forms” on Global TCU.
  2. Follow the program-specific application steps found on your program page.
  3. Submit theĀ Credit Approval Form with all signatures. You can watch a video tutorial on YouTube. This step is not required for TCU summer faculty-led programs.

Applications to Oxford or a TCU Exchange Program

Students applying to Oxford or a TCU Exchange are strongly urged to meet with the Center for International Studies very early, at least a year before they plan to go abroad. There is a nomination process, so deadlines occur much earlier than other TCU programs. Email for more information.
