Please note that you must check with your university’s study abroad office to ensure that you are following their procedures before beginning your application to John Cabot University. Should you wish to satisfy graduation requirements by transferring credits earned at JCU, please consult with your academic advisor to choose your courses prior to departure.

Candidates are responsible for ensuring that the completed application and all supporting materials reach the University in accordance with the above application deadlines. After submitting your application, you may check your application checklist and ultimately view your admissions decision by logging in to our online application.
