Apply > Applying to a DU Partner Program

The directions below outline the DU Nomination Requirements which are due January 30th for all 2014-2015 programs.

As a number of programs are competitive, students who are requesting nomination to a specialized, language or exchange program must select alternate program choices, at least one of which must be a foundational or language program with a "good" or "very good" chance of placement (this information can be found on  DU Partner Program summaries). If you do not select alternate programs and you are not nominated for your first and only choice, you may not be able to participate in a DU partner program for the 2014-15 academic year.

Applicants to exchange programs must plan to study abroad for an academic year. Applicants to foundational specialized, or language programs may only apply for one term, though in some cases students may be permitted to extend to an academic year after the program has begun.

Students should not complete their program specific applications until after receiving a nomination from DU. Your OIE advisor will email you your nomination and instructions and the deadline for completing the program-specific application sometime in mid to late February.
