Post-Acceptance Checklist

  1. Complete all post-acceptance forms by logging back into the application system and checking your dashboard for incomplete items.
  2. International Students: Make an appointment with the Slutzker Center  to discuss immigration rules related to study abroad.
  3. Visa: Apply for your student visa or travel documents. Please follow your World Partner’s instructions for obtaining your visa.
  4. Financial aid: Find more financial aid and scholarship information on the Syracuse Abroad website and meet with your financial aid counselor to understand how your current financial aid will apply toward study abroad.
  5. Work with your major/minor and general academic advisors to complete your program’s World Partner Student Advising form (one of the post-acceptance forms).
  6. Meet our Global Ambassadors or talk to other program alumni. The best way to understand what to expect when you are abroad is to talk to someone who has already participated in the program.
  7. Submit all your World Partner’s required post-acceptance forms, even if they include information already provided to SU or Syracuse Abroad.
  8. Review your private health insurance, the Syracuse Abroad Insurance, and the World Partner insurance (if applicable). After reviewing this information and taking into consideration your own health needs, you will be able to decide if you need to purchase additional insurance.
  9. Consider purchasing personal property insurance, if you bring your laptop or expensive camera abroad.
  10. Follow your World Partner’s instructions to purchase a flight. Information will be provided to you after your acceptance.
  11. If applicable, cancel on-campus housing for your semester abroad. You must cancel housing for the fall semester by July 1 and spring semester by the last week in November.
