Application Instructions: All programs

  • Complete and submit the fully signed form and all relevant documentation to OIE by the deadlines listed above to indicate faculty or staff intent to lead the program again in the upcoming year.
  • The program must follow each of the requirements outlined in the "Post-approval Requirements for All International Programs with Students" in UPP 1-18.
  • All education abroad programs, whether new or established, are subject to ongoing review and potential cancellation at the University's discretion and when current governmental and non-governmental recommendations or advisories warrant.

Application Instructions: Credit-bearing programs

1) All new international, faculty-led credit-bearing programs must complete the Faculty-led International Program Proposal Template.

2) All leaders of established international, faculty-led credit bearing programs must complete the Established Education Abroad Program Continuation Form, in place of the Faculty-led International Program Proposal.

An Established Education Abroad Program is a program which has successfully run at least one time in the last three years, for which the term, location, course and primary activities remain unchanged from the previous offering.

Established Education Abroad Programs traveling to new locations, or for which the term, course or primary activities have changed must follow the appropriate guidelines delineated in UPP 1-18 for new credit or non-credit programs.

If you are unsure if your program qualifies for a Continuation Form, please contact Karli Webster for further information.

Application Instructions: Non-credit Campus Ministry, service, student organization or volunteer programs

NOTE: Student organizations must also follow the process and guidelines delineated in the International Travel section of the Student Organization Handbook issued by the Office of Student Development.

1) All leaders of new Campus Ministry, service, student organization or volunteer programs, including existing projects expanding to new locations, must complete the Non-Credit International Program Proposal Template.

2) All leaders of established Campus Ministry, service, student organization or volunteer programs must complete the Established Non-Credit Education Abroad Program Continuation Form.

Application Instructions: Other international student group travel under the auspices of Marquette University

All other new student travel programs with any international component, which do not fall under the categories above, must comply with the Office of International Education new program guidelines and complete the Faculty-led International Program Proposal Template. 

Once a program is approved by the OIE, Office of the Registrar and Provost, faculty may begin recruiting students for their program.  Please contact the OIE Coordinator with whom you are working on your program to get more details and suggestions on how to effectively market faculty-led study abroad programs.
