Application Notes

Please contact your college’s Off-Campus Study/Study Abroad office to discuss your off-campus study plans

Your college’s application process may involve additional application materials, and campus deadlines may be considerably earlier than the ACM deadlines. If your campus does not have an Off-Campus Studies office, speak with the appropriate faculty advisor for the program on your campus.

Students will typically be notified about their acceptance about two weeks after submitting their complete application

ACM makes acceptance decisions for off-campus study programs on a “rolling” basis. After you have submitted your complete application (including academic transcript, recommendations, and other required paperwork), you will receive a decision from the ACM office, typically about two weeks after final submission of materials.  

Late applications may be accepted on a space-available basis

While preference will be given to students who have met the application deadline, late applications may be accepted on a space-available basis. If the application deadline has passed and you are still interested in applying for a program, please submit your application immediately and contact ACM.
