How to Apply for Affiliated Programs
Students interested in affiliated programs should complete the steps outlined on this page, which include action items in the MyAbroad portal and the affiliate provider’s website. Some affiliates are quite competitive. Admissions decisions are typically confirmed within two weeks after the application deadline.
How to Apply
Use Self-Guided Resources
Use the Ready to Apply Checklist to finalize your search and help you decide which program is the best fit for your goals. Find the program code. You will need it to complete Step 4.
Affiliated Partner Program pages list the program codes and useful information:
Choose a Program
Self-authorize your application. Use the program code you identified in Step 2. If possible, pick a first and second choice program from the same affiliate provider. If your preferred affiliate provider does not offer two options, indicate a program from another affiliated provider.
Complete UT's Online Application
Complete the MyAbroad online application by the deadline.
Complete the Affiliate Organization's Application
Complete the affiliate organization's application on their website by the deadline. Deadlines vary so pay close attention.
Submit Home School Nomination Form
Most organizations require that a representative from UT complete a "home school nomination" that attests to your disciplinary record and GPA. Many times this is submitted digitally through the partner's application portal and you can add your program coordinator's name to the request. Sometimes, the provider requires a paper form, which you can submit to email@example.com.
Complete the Restricted Regions Request Process
Due to elevated State Department and CDC travel warnings, all students going on exchange, affiliate and independent programs must complete the Restricted Regions Request process.

Most affiliate providers process admissions on a rolling basis. Once you have been admitted by an affiliate organization, they will inform UT Austin. All admitted students will participate in pre-departure activities hosted by the affiliate organization and UT Austin. Additionally, admitted students will be enrolled in a UT Austin CANVAS community that provides specific guidance and resources.
