Application Process

Once a student has completed Study Abroad 101 and has identified a program that is a good academic, financial, and personal fit for them, they should then begin the application process with UNC Charlotte Education Abroad (EA). A meeting with an Advisor in the EA may be required in order to access the EA application, or depending on the program type, students may be able to simply request access to an EA application when they’re ready.


The first required step for all UNC Charlotte students interested in going abroad. This interactive, non-credit Canvas course will cover everything students need to know, including program options, costs, academic credit, and more.
