2. Start Your Application

There are three steps to the application – the online form, deposit and transcript.  It’s simple and should not take more than 15-20 minutes to complete. Here’s how:

– Complete the online form here.  You’ll need to know which program you are applying for to get started.  If you already know, great! If you aren’t sure which program yet, schedule a quick chat with our team before you begin.  It’s best to complete the application all at one sitting or you may have to start over at the beginning.

– Submit your deposit. You can either submit the payment at the end of our application (select “pay now”) or submit it later (select “pay later”).  Your application is not complete until you submit this deposit.

– Request an official transcript from your home university.  If you are applying for a GO or LEAD program, visit your school’s registrar’s website to find the link to request an official transcript.  You want to send it to Oglethorpe University, our academic partner.  You can send an electronic or paper version (electronic is usually faster).  If you are a freshman, you will submit a transcript in the spring once you have completed a semester at your university.

3. Talk to Your Parents

Study abroad is a family decision and we keep parents in the loop every step of the way.  Speak with your parents to let them know you are interested in going abroad this summer.  It’s a great idea to show that you’ve done the research and to know why you believe LeadAbroad is the perfect program for you.

We also have a parent team who talks to parents all day long and we’d be happy to answer your parents’ detailed questions about the program, health and safety and logistics.

Have your parents schedule a call here!
