Now that you've created your application...

Now that you have successfully created your Rowan Study Abroad Application you can begin to work on the tasks you need to complete by the deadline. The application is broken up into 4 sections. The following instructions will guide you through the entire process.
  
SECTION 1:      
Here you will find several documents that you must read, understand and electronically sign to confirm that you understand what is being requested of you. 
 
SECTION 2:  
1. Confirmed Program Dates: Indicate the start and end date of your program. 
2. Credit Approval Form: This must be printed out and brought to your Academic Advisor for his/her approval of your courses.
3. ESSAY: You can answer one of the questions listed in the application. (250 words)
 
SECTION 3:    
1. Application Fee: This fee is non-refundable. As of the application deadline, your Banner account will be charged a $250 fee and you will have 30 days to make payment to the Bursar's Office for this fee. 
2. Budget Form: You will need to schedule an appointment with the Education Abroad Advisor to complete your Budget Form. At this appointment you will be shown an estimate of expenses for your program abroad.
3. Credit/GPA Approval: You are required to complete at least 30 credits and have at least a 2.5 GPA in order to study abroad. The Advisor for Education Abroad will mark this as completed once we review your credits and GPA.
4. Disciplinary Clearance: The Education Abroad Advisor will ensure that you have no current disciplinary   violations and that you are cleared to study abroad. This item will be checked off by the Education Abroad Advisor.
5. Partner Organization Application:
 **For ISA applicants, this will be checked off by the Education Abroad Advisor upon receipt of your Supplemental Page that you receive in an email from ISA after you create your ISA account and pay the $95 deposit.
 **For AIFS applicants, once you apply to AIFS, I will get a notification. As long as you have began your Rowan application, I will check this off of your list.
 **All other programs will need to show me a confirmation that you have applied.
 
SECTION 4:
Recommendations: Please choose the "Request Electronic Recommendation" Link, then fill in the first name, last name and email address of the person you want to recommend you and the system will automatically send that person the recommendation. Once the person completes the recommendation you will automatically see it checked off on your application.
 
You will need to do this 2 times, as you are required to obtain 2 recommendations. Recommendations should be from a Rowan professional (advisor, professor, coach, employer)
