J-Term 2020: GSJ Courses 
Students who will have Senior standing (92 credits completed) or Junior standing (60 credits completed) by the end of Spring Semester 2019 are eligible to apply for a J-Term 2020 GSJ Course through Global Studies.   If there are more applicants than there are spots available on the program, considerations for applicant selection will include both class standing and essay content.  Students are always encouraged to prepare thorough, thoughtful, well-crafted essay responses and proof read for spelling and grammar.

The priority application period lasts from the time the applications open on April 1 until the priority application deadline on April 15.  All applications submitted during the priority application period will be reviewed by the faculty member(s) leading the course after the priority application deadline.  In other words, it doesn't matter if you complete your application right on April 1, or if you enter the final piece of information you need on April 15... all applications submitted during the priority application period will be reviewed at the same time.  

Students who submit an application during the priority application period will be notified of a decision on their application by email no later than the end of the Spring Semester. If a course has more applicants than space available at the priority application deadline, a waitlist of up to 10 students will be created.  Students not accepted to their first choice of program may switch their application to another program or request a refund of their program deposit. 

Additional applications will be reviewed and accepted on a rolling basis after the priority deadline, as space is available, until the October 1, 2019 final deadline.

Program information will be published on the program brochure pages as it is available; program pricing will not be available until the very end of March/beginning of April.
