Purchase Faculty-Led Programs

Application deadlines vary by program. Check your program’s profile in Horizons or the OIPS website for the most up to date information.

Applying to a faculty-led program requires multiple steps:

  1. Create an online profile in our Horizons application system.
  2. Choose your program and complete the application form in Horizons. The application includes a personal statement, transcript and a faculty recommendation.
  3. OIPS reviews applications and receives input from faculty leading the program
  4. Participate in an interview with an OIPS advisor
  5. If accepted, complete the Agreement and Acceptance of Risk for Study Abroad form (AAR) to signal your commitment to participating in the program.*
  6. After committing to the program, the full program cost will be billed to you by Purchase College Student Financial Services office.
  7. Complete post-acceptance paperwork steps and attend a pre-departure orientation.

Note: Credits and grades earned on a Purchase faculty-led program transfer directly to your transcript and are factored into your GPA.

*Withdrawal from the program after submitting the AAR form and after the program commitment deadline stated in your email, will result in a $200 Program Cancellation Charge. Visit our Withdrawals & Refund Policies page for more information.
