Program Description:
Non-UD Study Abroad Programs Application 

Students have the freedom to take their education around the globe!   If UD does not have an active faculty-led program or institutional partnership abroad, students have the ability to study through Non-UD Programs throughout the entire world.  Please feel free to visit our office to review hard copy materials from many provider programs, or use the hyperlinks provided below for two major study abroad online search engines.  (Please note, that all outside programs must first be approved by the Education Abroad Office before students are eligible to participate)
For any UD student participating in a Third Party/Non-UD Provider program, this application is a requirement.  There are several on-campus procedures that you need to be aware of and are responsible for, and by working with the Education Abroad Office you will be well-prepared for your study abroad experience!

Financial Aid 

When students choose to participate in a program that is not affiliated with the University of Dayton billing and financial aid is altered to align with the provider.  A points to take note of when considering a program outside of the university.
  • UD scholarships are not transferable to outside provider programs.  All scholarships will be reinstated when the students returns from abroad, but can not be used for their program.
  • Government Financial Aid, including grants and loans, can be transferable but are subject to award availability and guidelines.
  • If students intend to use their government awarded student aid they will be required to complete a Consortium Agreement with their chosen provider and the Flyers First Office. (The Consortium Agreement can be found within their UD application materials or can be obtained at the Flyers First Office)


  • All program bills will be sent directly to the student or designated recipient listed for charges towards the program.  No charges will, or can be, processed through the University of Dayton.
  • Students will not be asked to pay for tuition, housing, or meal plans to the University of Dayton while away on their program. 


  • Students must be in sophomore standing
  • Students must be in good academic and disciplinary standing - both at the time their application is being processed and at time of departure.
  • They must all the requirements to participate from both the University of Dayton, as well as the Third Party Provider

Pre-Departure Orientation

Students will be required to participate in a pre-departure orientation in the semester prior to their program participation.
Pre-departure is MANDATORY for all accepted participants and dates and times will be announced within your application as they are scheduled

Third Party Providers may also have orientation requirements that align with their program.  Students will also be responsible for completing any, or all, offerings mandated by the provider.

Additional Information and Things to Consider

  • If you do not yet have a passport, or if it is/or is about to expire, it is advised that you process a new one as soon as possible.  This is documentation that is needed for the final stages of your application for the University of Dayton, and may be requested before acceptance for provider companies.

Elizabeth Carol Johns, Summer 2013 Participant
This program was so amazing because it gave me the opportunity to experience a country and a culture entirely different than my own. Because I went with API, I did not know a soul in Spain. However, my program was fantastic and I was able to meet people from all around the world. I was placed in an apartment right in Sol, which is literally the heart of Madrid, and I could not have been placed in a better location. My classes and my professors did not speak English, so it was perfect because I had an amazing opportunity to be completely immersed in the language classes. I could not have asked for a better experience, and I would do it all over again the exact same way.

I chose SLU Madrid because they offer more classes that will transfer over. The challenging part was going to the school and not knowing anyone since it is not partnered with UD, but there are people from around the world. The school has a lot of field trips you can take with your classes which made learning fun. I made friends from all over the world and the school had a bunch of great events for all students through out the semester. I couldn't see anyone coming here and not liking it.

Eileen M Comerford, Fall 2013 Participant
Antioch's WGSE program was one of the most rewarding experiences I've ever been through. I learned so much about women's issues, including general topics like history, theory, psychology, sociology, anthropology, philosophy, racial justice, cultural comparatives, and life in general. I really think this program made me a better-rounded person than I was before. Aside from that, I made so many friends from all over the world, who are so diverse from each other, and especially from the friends I have always been around. My world has opened up immensely.

Taylor Jessica Glickman, Fall 2016 Participant
Having an internship abroad is something I would HIGHLY recommend. It was amazing to be able to turn an average resume building internship to an incomparable professional and international experience. The ability to work abroad really gave a whole knew meaning to "adaptability" and "cultural understanding". The program I went with made finding work and living arrangements easy and stress free.

API takes you to a lot of places you wouldn't go otherwise. They definitely have well rounded activities for the students. The program directors were always available to help whenever needed.

Eric A Brown, Spring 2014 Participant
API is the best third party organization in Buenos Aires. It is big enough to get reservations and make plans, but small enough to cater to every student and have a good group dynamic. Carmen is the best coordinator and really takes care to make sure your whole trip runs smoothly. She is very organized and handles every problem or issue very smoothly. She also is so energized about her job and makes the organization tick. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone looking to study abroad in Buenos Aires, API is the best. Also, Bs As is a very unique "latin american" experience because the culture is very European. Having spent time in Central America, the society and the people are worlds apart.

Summer 2014 Participant
Highly recommend AIFS! The program supports you every step of the way! Wonderful Experience!

One of the most important things I took away from this program is that even though everyone comes from somewhere different, we are all brought together for the same reasons.  We are lucky to speak English because most of Europe uses it to communicate with each other if they don't speak the same language. I also learned you will make friends in the most unlikely of places.
