Students interested in registering for a J-term travel course should submit an application to their desired program through Terra Dotta, Drake's application and database system for study abroad.
**Students should not attempt to register for the seminar in MyDUSIS. Rather, students initiate the registration process by applying for a program in Terra Dotta. See Procedure section below.
Students may apply to no more than two programs. Students who apply for two programs must rank their applications, and they will be accepted as determined by their rankings. No exceptions. Students will not be accepted into more than one program.
Cost information and acceptance criteria will be listed in Terra Dotta and may vary by seminar.
The Drake International Office will review students' applications, accept eligible students based on each program's acceptance criteria, and notify each applicant whether their application was approved or denied.
Students will be registered automatically in MyDUSIS by the Office of the Registrar once they have committed (in Terra Dotta) to the program to which they have been accepted. Drake International will explain the students' next steps, including payment information.
Students, faculty, and staff who have questions about the application/registration process may contact Drake International at firstname.lastname@example.org or 515-271-2084.
