How to Apply

Once you have decided on a program, go to the top of the program webpage and click “Apply Now” to begin your application. Be sure to fill out the application in full.

All KSU faculty-led programs require a $300 non-refundable deposit within your application. This $300 is subtracted from your total program fee. Meanwhile, exchange programs require a $150 administrative fee.

All programs require a completed Needs Assessment Questionnaire & Medical Clearance Form. The Needs Assessment Questionnaire & Medical Clearance Form are available in the application portal. View the program page and application for additional requirements. 

Non-KSU programs also require deposits and application fees (see program application for details).

Exchange program participants must have at least a 2.75 institutional GPA to be eligible to participate in a KSU education abroad program (3.0 for graduate students).

Undergraduate students that do not meet the minimum GPA requirement for applicable programs may submit a GPA appeal for further review. (Graduate students and Faculty-Led applicants are ineligible to appeal.) See Education Abroad Student Eligibility Policy below.

  • Exchange/independent program minimum institutional (adjusted) GPA in order to submit an appeal is 2.5. Students falling under this GPA are ineligible to submit an appeal.
