After the deadline, applicants are reviewed and students are notified of acceptance. If you are not selected for a spot on your chosen exchange, and if there are still spots available to attend other exchange locations, you will then be considered. Please only apply for one exchange program by the deadline. Applications should be reviewed in time to notify you of your status to then make a decision to try for another location if necessary.
