Waitlist Information

If you have been wait listed for a Study Abroad program, you still have some opportunities to be selected and should be aware of the following information:

  • Being on a program's wait list means you qualify to participate in the program but it has reached capacity.
  • Accepted students must confirm or decline their offer within one week of receipt of offer. If openings develop, you may be offered a spot in a program. There is usually some activity on wait lists up until the middle of March for fall and academic year programs, and in August for spring programs.
  • There is no ranked order on the wait list. Each location has different considerations.  
  • If you have a definite offer for one program but wish to remain on the wait list for another program, BE ADVISED that once you confirm for a program, you are no longer on the waitlist for other academic year programs. Give careful consideration before giving up any offer.
  • Make sure you have a valid passport expiring at least six months after your anticipated program end date. If an opportunity presents itself with short notice, you need to possess a valid passport to be considered for participation.
  • Consider summer Study Abroad options. Scholarships may be available for some summer programs. 
  • Notre Dame International is committed to expanding its Study Abroad programs. Check our website regularly for announcements about new opportunities.
