Students must be of at least junior status and in good academic standing, with a GPA of at least 2.00 at the time of application.  Meeting this minimum GPA does not guarantee admission.

Students must also submit a one-page essay explaining their reasons for choosing this particular museum studies focused program.

Applicants’ participation may be denied or their participation approval may be revoked if their conduct before departure raises doubts as to their suitability for program participation.

Students must apply online. Applications must be received in the Office of Study Abroad by (check with Study Abroad Office for new deadline!) for summer programs.  We strongly recommend that you apply early as many programs fill to capacity prior to their deadlines.

Selection of applicants is done on a rolling admission basis.  However, applying early and meeting the minimum eligibility requirements does not guarantee admission.

A $100 application fee is required.  Students will receive an e-bill for the application fee that is applied to the cost of the program and is non-refundable once a student has accepted admission into the program.  Students who have accepted admission may also be billed for a non-refundable and non-transferable $200 deposit, also applied to the cost of the program.

Students who wish to withdraw their application are required to notify the Office of Study Abroad, in writing, that they no longer intend to participate.

Acceptance to all programs is based, minimally, on a program leader review of your transcript and a review of the Judicial Affairs Office records (MSU students) or Dean of Students Reference (non-MSU students).

Details about the admissions process, pre-departure information, what to know while you’re abroad, and information about returning home can be found in the Study Abroad Student Guide.

Program fees, dates, and arrangements are subject to change, due to unforeseen considerations.
