Like applying to Drake, there are several forms involved with applying to study abroad!

Depending on the type of program you are joining, different types of forms are required for you to complete your study abroad application.  

For students who are thinking about studying abroad, take a look at our Study Abroad Checklist by topic area (application process, finances, etc.) or by timeline (12 months before departure until you return home). Reviewing these checklists are a good starting point on things to consider during the application process. 

For students who are participating in an Exchange or Affiliate program, you will want to get your courses pre-approved for transfer credit back to Drake. You can use the Course Approval Form when meeting with your Academic Advisor(s). 

Most other study abroad forms can be found and completed once you start your online application. The forms within your online application are signed electronically and remain at your disposal throughout your international experience. For students participating in an Exchange or Affiliate program, you will also upload a digital copy of your completed Course Approval Form to your online application.
