  • Apply for your chosen study abroad program through Pace (via the blue "Apply Now" button), and wait to be notified by Education Abroad. Pace academic credits for study abroad will only be awarded to students who have applied and been accepted to study abroad by Pace Education Abroad.
  • After you submit your Pace study abroad application, attend a "Study Abroad 102" info session (N/A for faculty-led programs) - where you will research classes on the host school's/program's website and practice completing course approval forms ("credit equivalencies"). 
  • If accepted into your study abroad program:
    • You will then be required to apply to the foreign host institution directly. Follow the instructions sent to you by the Education Abroad office on next steps. 
    • Complete your course approval forms ("credit equivalencies"). All courses taken abroad must be approved by the relevant Pace department chair. Pace students must take a minimum of 12 U.S. credits during each semester abroad.
    • Apply for a visa (if applicable) and book your flight.
    • Attend a mandatory pre-departure orientation at Pace Education Abroad.
