How to sign up for a program

If you are a SDSU student:  

You will apply for a program by finding it in this database.   When asked if you have a User Name and Password you will say YES!  Your User Name and password are your MyState Login and password.  To complete your application you will these things: 
 
  1. If the program requires this, click on the link and complete the Study Abroad application-this is a short essay or at least a few sentences about why you want this study abroad placement.  
  2. Upload your unofficial transcript ONLY if your GPA is less than a 2.5.  If it is greater than 2.5, write "Not needed" in the box.
  3. Click on the links and read the Signature documents.  On each one, you will scroll down to the bottom of the document and electronically sign.  The three required documents for all programs are the SDSU Behavior agreement document, the SDSU Acceptance of Risk, Release and Waiver document and the Payment/Withdrawal Policy document.  

After these items are completed, you can be approved/or accepted for your program at SDSU.  You will know your application is complete when the boxes are checked! Once you have been approved or accepted, you will need to click the Commit button that will appear.  Clicking the Commit button means that you agree to take part in the program once the program is confirmed with enough students to go.  If you have changed your mind, then click the Decline program to be removed from the program. Please be sure you are checking your Jack's email for any updates! 

If you are NOT an SDSU student, but studying at another institution:

You will apply for a program by finding it in this database.   When asked if you have a User Name and Password you will say NO!  After completing some information where you will specify your STATE and then your INSTITUTION, the system will then send you a User Name and Password.   If you are from outside South Dakota and seeking a degree at another institution, you will need to apply to South Dakota State University as a non-degree student, in order to participate on an International program and the credit.   If you are enrolled at another SDBOR school, you will not need to apply as a non-degree student.  

Students who are not SDSU students, will also be prompted to provide a scan of their school ID card to be authenticated in the SDSU system.  Once you have done this, you will be able to complete your application to study abroad with SDSU

A Confirmed Program
After we have the number of students on which we have based a budget fully committed to the program, we confirm the program will be going with an email to all students.  At this time, we also report to students how they will be billed for a program.  Billing is typically in two payments.  First is a confirmation deposit of $500.00.  Second is the remaining amount of the program package billed about 8 weeks before the travel begins.  Both payments are billed on or near the 10th of the month.

Withdrawing from a Confirmed Program

Students can withdraw from a program at anytime before the program is confirmed if they have been accepted.  Students will see a decline button that permits them to withdraw themselves on their application page. If students have committed to the program, they must immediately email either Briana.Litz@sdstate.edu or Sally.Gillman@sdstate.edu to request to be withdrawn from the program.  After the program is confirmed, students are obligated to pay for the program if they participate in the travel program or not.  The only mechanism to be considered for withdrawal is the Compassionate Withdrawal Process if the student has suffered a sudden illness or accident preventing them from travel.  Documentation from a physician or counselor or other authority is required.   Please request the Compassionate Withdrawal Materials from Sally.Gillman@sdstate.edu.
