Applying to Summer Programs
There are two basic categories for summer programs: Bucknell-in programs, which are led by Bucknell University faculty, and non-Bucknell programs managed my third-party providers outside the University.
Each Bucknell-in program develops its own application process and timeline. Any student who is interested in attending a Bucknell-in summer program should contact the program coordinator or attend a program information session.
Students interested in studying abroad with a third party provider must complete two applications and be approved to study abroad by Bucknell University and the Third Party Provider.
Bucknell Application: Complete the Bucknell Application for Approval to Study Off Campus- Summer and submit it to the Office of International Education by April 1.
Provider Application: Students must also complete a provider application for their individual program. For summer programs it is the student's responsibility to gather the appropriate application materials and send in their program application directly to the program provider.
When applying to summer programs it is important to pay close attention to the individual program deadlines. Deadlines for summer programs vary greatly among/within program providers and it is the student's responsibility to ensure program applications reach the provider prior to the deadline date.
Bucknell University requires no specific GPA for Summer Study Abroad. However, various summer programs will require a specific GPA, which students will need to consider when researching summer programs.
Students should also have a history of good conduct and citizenship with Bucknell University. Disciplinary and conduct issues will be evaluated by the Office of International Education and program providers.
