Application Process

Sweet Briar College Application

Sweet Briar College has a two-tiered application process to study abroad. Students first complete an internal Sweet Briar College application. This ensures that applicants have the necessary qualifications for the institution or program to which they are applying, and that they are not on academic or disciplinary probation at the time of application or when they will be abroad. Approval by Sweet Briar College to apply to a host institution or study abroad program is a very strong endorsement to the host institution/provider program.

Host Institution/Provider Program Application

Students then complete an application to their future host institution. The host institution/provider program applications will be available to students once they have been approved to study abroad. Components from the Sweet Briar College application (i.e. transcript and letters of recommendation) are used in the host institution/provider program application to ensure that there is not duplicate work.
