Today we hit the Early application deadline and we push toward Final application deadline on September 22. We’re seeing new applications started and those students get information on how to proceed and plan for their study abroad course.

As of Friday morning, we have nearly 120 applications started, and enrollment reports are available for faculty, on-site admins, and member institution folks. We are shooting for 150 applications by September 22. With 28 members, that is an average of 5.36 per school.

Study Abroad Fairs

We’ve seen a students at three fairs — Eastern Kentucky University, Georgetown College, and University of Louisville.

Next week we have three big events as well. For those at the member institutions, come on by and say hello. And of course, send students our way.
