Application Process

We look forward to experiencing a life-changing semester with you in Bologna.

Please review your eligibility and follow the steps based on your sending university:

For Visiting Students:

We encourage all students that are interested in our program to submit an online application through our website as it will allow us to keep in contact with you throughout the process. However, the most important step is to understand any and all procedures that you must follow from your home campus study abroad office. We, the Italy Center, will not be able to officially accept you into the program until we receive official approval from your home campus study abroad office–that is why it is absolutely critical that you work closely with your study abroad adviser throughout the process. After we receive approval from your study abroad adviser, we will then move forward in preparing you for your time abroad with us in Bologna.

For SHC Students:

Your absolute first step would be to submit an application online. From there, we will complete an academic and disciplinary review of your records before making a decision on your application. If you have questions about the program, contact the Italy Center office at
