Application Deadlines

All applications run on an Application Cycle with an opening start and end date, which is posted on each program’s SlugsAbroad webpage. Please keep in mind that deadlines are typically 6-8 months in advance of departure. UCSC Study Abroad processes applications on a rolling admissions basis. Students should be mindful of applying close to the opening start dates for Limited Capacity Programs, which fill-up when capacity is met (first come, first serve).
