Apply to an Approved List Program

If applying to study abroad on an Approved List Program, students must schedule an advising session with the Office of International & Off-Campus Programs . Please call 973-408-3438 or e-mail ( to arrange. This is also the opportunity to ask questions regarding the process and policies.

Review the Approved List Programs.

There are two parts to any approved list application:

  • The student should apply on-line for approval to study abroad and submit a completed course approval form to the IOCP Office in HS-9. This is necessary in order to ensure that Drew will accept credit for the study abroad, and also to generate proper billing and payment to the alternate institution.
  • The student must then apply for acceptance to the institution through which he/she plans on participating.

The application deadline for a Spring Program is October 10, and March 10 for the Fall Program

*Students must attend an IOCP pre-departure orientation before they depart.
