All program applications include the IAP online application, which includes your program selection, demographic, academic, and contact information, as well as your campus code of conduct (disciplinary) history. You must also complete a brief survey about the program selection and application process.
Programs may include the following additional application materials: essay questions, program specific forms, and/or personal identification documents, like passport copies. After making a program selection in the online application, program-specific materials become available to you.
For some programs, you may also need to complete an application to the host university (in the case of an exchange) or a partner or provider. If this is required, it will be noted on the IAP application with instructions and/or a link to the partner’s application.
You should fully complete your IAP program application, the online application and any additional forms or activities, by the deadline posted on the program web page.
