Getting Started

Attend a Study Abroad Fair at Pace!

Fall 2020 Fairs: September 16 & 17

  • New York City (Bianco Room): September 16, 11:00 am-2:00 pm
  • Pleasantville: September 17, 12:00-3:00 pm

Steps to Study Abroad

  • Attend a 30-minute virtual "Study Abroad 101" zoom info session through Pace Education Abroad (to learn about the process).
  • Research study abroad programs in the Pace Study Abroad database
  • Optional: meet with a "PAL" (Pace students who have studied abroad) virtually for one-on-one peer advising, if you have questions.
  • Meet virtually with your Academic Advisor (to review your academic track, class flexibility, and plans to study abroad in relation to your graduation & major/minor requirements).
  • 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.

Application Deadlines

Summer 2020 programs: March 15

  • As of March 18, all Summer I Pace Term programs have been cancelled

Fall 2020 Semester Programs: February 15 or **April 15

Fall 2020 Faculty-Led Programs: *April 15

We invite students to apply for Fall 2020 faculty-led programs after the April 15 "Priority Deadline" on a space-available basis — after the initial round of applicants have been enrolled in the course.

Notice regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19): We understand that students may be hesitant about applying for a Fall 2020 faculty-led course (with travel abroad) due to the global COVID-19 situation. All of the Pace Fall 2020 faculty-led courses feature study abroad in January 2021. We recommend that you complete your application for the faculty-led course you are interested in, and also select a backup Pace course on campus; this would protect you in case the evolving COVID-19 situation affects international travel (which could involve a course cancellation over the summer). If a faculty-led course is cancelled by Pace due to an ongoing COVID-19 threat, the $500 deposit will be returned to students.

Spring 2021 Programs

Attend a virtual Study Abroad 101/102 Info Session

Students are required to attend both an Abroad 101 & Abroad 102 session during the semester prior to a term abroad - to understand the process and responsibilities. Each information session is 30 minutes and will take place virtually using Zoom. See below for days/times of these regularly-scheduled sessions. (If you're unable to attend a virtual session at any regularly scheduled sessions, email the Study Abroad Office with your availability to set up your preferred time.)

Virtual "Abroad 101 sessions" explore the basics of going abroad:

  • Short-term, semester, and year program options
  • Financial Aid & Scholarships
  • Registration and how to apply 

Virtual "Abroad 102 sessions" (for students who have already started an application for study abroad) will learn about how to obtain Pace credits for courses taken abroad:

  • How to make Course Equivalency Forms for the courses you will take abroad
  • Have your laptop handy during the Abroad 102, so you can practice making a Course Equivalency Form 

Students are required to virtually attend both an Abroad 101 & Abroad 102 session prior to making an appointment with a Study Abroad Advisor.

Note: Attendance must have been within 6 months prior to study abroad. If your last attendance at either an Abroad 101 or 102 was more than 6 months prior to your program, you will need to re-attend in order to re-familiarize yourself with the process.

Peer Advising

Our office is also staffed by student "Pace Abroad Leaders" who can help to answer your general questions about Pace study abroad programs. All PALs are returned study abroad students who are eager to share their experiences with you! PALs can help you with learning more about program options; deciding on a program; applying; understanding the study abroad process at Pace; and, travel/packing tips. PALs may refer you to our professional advising staff and can help you make an appointment for questions that go into specifics beyond peer advising. Read more about our PALS and where they studied abroad.
