Application Requirements

Application Checklist:  Only complete applications will be reviewed.  A complete application consists of the following:

  • Global Education Center Study Abroad program online application form
  •  2 Recommendations: 1 from a faculty member, 1 from a resident director. Recommendations from two faculty members are also acceptable.
  • Your unofficial transcript will automatically be provided to the Global Education staff upon application submission.
Non-NWC students, please note this is a two-step process. First fill out Northwestern's guest application form. Upon submission of this form, NWC will provide you with login and password information that will allow you to access and fill out the appropriate study abroad application for acceptance to the specific summer program in which you are interested. These forms do not ensure transferability of credit to your home institution for courses taken at Northwestern College.

Application Deadline

Deadline: 5 pm on February 1 of each year

All materials, including letters of reference, must be received by the official deadline of February 1. The on-line application goes live mid-November. Applicants are advised to give their referees several weeks' notice of their need for a letter.
