Semester Study Abroad through Approved Partner Programs

Wheaton College has over 50 Approved Programs for Off-Campus semester study.  Wheaton students may enroll in a semester off-campus (international and domestic programs) with a wide variety of approved program options around the world.  Students typically apply in the semester before participation, while some programs require applications nearly one year in advance of participation.  Students 1) must meet eligibility requirements of Wheaton College, 2) complete the Wheaton approval and pre-departure requirements, and 3) also apply and complete the requirements of the Approved Program.

Application Deadline to participate in a Fall Program: March 15th
