These parts vary by program; be certain you know what is required for your specific program. Information and complete application forms are in each program brochure and website.

Submit the program application to the same faculty program representative or office as listed above. For international programs, please have all parts of the program application (including an official transcript and any recommendations) sent to the Fried International Center. We will forward your application to your program.

It is your responsibility, as a Hope College student, to submit both a complete Off-Campus Study Application and a complete program application. Given the number of students we work with, it is not possible for us to track down missing parts of an application for you.

*NOTE: Some programs have earlier application deadlines. If this is the case for the program to which you are applying, please follow the earlier deadline.
