Application Steps

All programs have limited enrollment, so apply early! Priority deadline applicants are admitted first.

  1. Search for your program and “Complete Forms” on Global TCU.
  2. Submit theĀ Credit Approval Form with all signatures. You can watch a video tutorial on YouTube. This step is not required for TCU faculty-led programs.
  3. Follow the program-specific application steps found on your program page.

Applications to Oxford or a TCU Exchange Program

Students applying to Oxford or a TCU Exchange are strongly urged to meet with the Center for International Studies very early, at least a year before they plan to go abroad. There is a nomination process, so deadlines occur much earlier than other TCU programs. Email for more information.
