Valpo Application Requirements and Deadlines 

You must have at least sophomore standing, cumulative GPA of 2.5, and have taken at least four semesters of college-level Spanish. You should consult with your academic advisor and the Office of Global Education as early as possible. It's never too early to start planning. Almost all Valpo students can participate in this program without delaying graduation if they plan carefully with their academic advisor.  

Application Requirements

The application is facilitated online through the Terra Dotta application management software. Upon beginning your application, you will be able to view requirements to complete an application laid out in a to-do list style page. Once an item is complete, a check box will be marked so you can easily identify which items are still outstanding.

Once all items are marked off, you will be able to submit your application. If you have any questions about the application, please contact the office at global.education@valpo.edu or stop in.

Application deadlines: **EARLY Deadlines for Spring Semester!:

Applications will be reviewed by the language department alongside the Office of Global Education staff after the deadline has passed. Once a decision has been made, applicants will be notified via their Valpo e-mail.

Students are welcome to meet with the program advisor at any time to assist with planning. Students are able and encouraged to start planning well before they would complete an application, and it's very common that they are working with study abroad staff a semester, or even a year or two beforehand. It's important for them to understand how study abroad courses will fit into their degree program, and start considering cost and funding information and the initial scholarship search.

Click the "Apply Now" button at the top of this page to begin an application.


Post-Acceptance Requirements
Once students are officially accepted, post-acceptance items will also be facilitated through the Terra Dotta software in the same fashion, though additional requirements may be requested via e-mail. It's important to the Office of Global Education's preparation process that students are engaged throughout the process and being mindful of all requirements, shared information, and deadlines.

Pre-departure Orientation
All study abroad program participants are required to complete pre-departure orientation. This will include a mix of online modules and information as well as meetings to ensure students are as prepared as possible. Of course, students are welcome to meet with their study abroad advisor as many times as they'd like to ensure they are on track and things are clear and to ask questions as they come up.


Cost Information

See the Budget Sheet above.

Students pay the same tuition and general fee to Valparaiso University for the term(s) abroad.  Any scholarships or financial aid apply, except for aid that requires on-campus participation (work-study and some athletic and music scholarships). Housing will be charged at the rate set by Central College.

Start your scholarships & funding search as early as possible so that you are able to plan and ensure you are able to meet any deadlines. Your study abroad advisor can also help you with brainstorming potential resources as well.
