Program requirement for study abroad applications
As you explore the program options, keep in mind that all applicants will apply to a first choice program and, as part of that application, will designate a second choice program.  One or both of your first or second choice programs must be an exchange/direct enroll program.  If only one of your choices is an exchange/direct enroll program, your other choice can be an affiliate program

The reason for this requirement stems from UR's study abroad philosophy of immersion not only in a foreign culture, but also in a foreign academic system.  Our exchange/direct enroll programs are designed to facilitate this kind of immersion.  We also offer affiliate programs to round out the curricular offerings available to serve the unique academic interests of UR students.


This requirement went into effect in August 2013.
