Notification of admission to your program abroad

  1. Notification of Clark’s approval to study abroad can be expected within three weeks after submitting a complete application. Notification will be sent via email to your Clark email address.
  2. Host universities or program providers notify students on their official admission to the program, usually via email.
  3. Once accepted by your host program, you will receive several emails providing additional information and requesting completion of forms.
  4. Submit requested information and forms as soon as possible. Do not wait for deadlines as this can be a problem in the event there are unforeseen delays. These may include housing forms, visa applications, scholarship forms, invoice payments and other action items you will have to complete.
  5. After you are admitted to the program abroad, the program becomes your main contact for questions and concerns. The Clark Study Abroad staff is available for support if you need additional assistance.
