Create a Program Proposal

UNC Charlotte Education Abroad utilizes a database called Terra Dotta Systems (“TDS”) to manage the study abroad program proposal, development, and management process. When you are ready to begin your program proposal all materials will be submitted through this online system. EA will offer workshops to assist faculty in navigating the proposal system leading up to the deadlines. We have also provided some guidance on our website and are happy to meet with you individually for assistance.
