Application Procedures

Full list of Approved Programs

Select one of the programs listed above to visit the program brochure page. In the upper right-hand corner, click the “Apply Now” button.

This will immediately take you to a login page. Please select the university from which you attend and enter your student ID # and password. Once you are logged in, you will be prompted to select the term (semester/year) that you wish to apply for.  After you click “Apply,” you will see your program application page. This page shows a checklist of required elements of the application in the pre-decision phase, including the following:

  • Material submissions
  • Signature documents
  • Recommendations
  • Application questionnaires

Students from other Claremont Colleges are required to attend an advising session. Therefore, they will be taken to the advising form rather than the application and will need to request access to the application from a study abroad advisor.

Applicants are also strongly encouraged to attend the information session for their chosen program.

You must submit all required elements by the deadline to complete your application to study abroad.

Students will also need to complete a secondary application for their program.

Applicants to the Kyoto program should meet with the program faculty liaison, Peter Flueckiger. The secondary application is available on the Associated Kyoto Program’s website.
