There are two parts to the exchange program/study abroad application process:

1. On-line Rensselaer Application

Complete the on-line Rensselaer Application in the Office of International Programs Application Portal and upload the required application submissions.  There are separate applications for affiliated exchange programs and non-affiliated study abroad. These materials will be reviewed by OIP staff and faculty at Rensselaer, and nomination letters will be issued by the OIP within two weeks of the application deadline.  You may only apply for one program per term.
2. Application of the Host Institution​
Affiliated Exchange:  Students who are nominated for affiliated exchange programs will be required to complete the application materials of the host institution, and will receive detailed instructions in their nomination letter.  Final admissions decisions are made by the host institution. 
Non-Affiliated Study Abroad:  A Rensselaer nomination means that your program has evaluated and that you will receive credit for courses that you have approved, subject to transfer credit restrictions.  You must apply directly to the study abroad program following their instructions and deadlines.
