Semester Abroad Application Process & Deadlines

As you embark on the incredible adventure of spending the semester or year abroad, it is important to begin planning how that time fits into your overall Penn experience. The Penn Abroad team is here to guide you through the process as you define your goals, choose a program, and complete the application process. All students applying to semester abroad programs are required to apply through Penn Abroad. Use the information and steps below to begin this exciting journey.

Due to COVID-19, Penn Abroad’s regular Semester Abroad programming will not run in the 2020-2021 academic year. The next application cycle for Semester Abroad will be in the 2021 – 2022 academic year. We will begin advising and opening applications for fall and academic year 2021 in the upcoming months. By joining our mailing list, you will receive an email when our Semester Abroad advising resumes.
