Application Deadlines

These deadlines for completion of the OIP electronic application should be used as a guide for planning.  

  • If you are applying to an Approved Alternative or Petition program, you must complete both an OIP electronic application and the application for the program provider, whose deadlines may differ from the OIP electronic application deadlines below. Please refer to the program provider website for information about their application deadlines.
  • It is best to apply early to an Approved or Petition program because many program providers accept applications on a rolling admissions basis.
  • If you are considering an Alternative or Petition Program, we recommend that you apply as soon as possible, even if you have not yet received study abroad approval from Brown.
