How to Apply                    Deadlines                             Incoming Exchange

At this site you will be able to apply to:

First Time Applicants:

Click the 'Programs' link at the top of the page to locate a program for which you would like to apply, then click on the 'Apply Now' button.  Once you click on the 'Apply Now' button, the system will ask you if you are currently a registered user at WUSTL? 

Current WU students and staff - answer Yes, select the term you are applying to study abroad and then login with your WUSTLKey and password. 

Non-WU students - answer No.  If you have not previously received login credentials you will be prompted to create an account and provide answers to three security questions.  An email will then be sent to you with your login information and a temporary password that you will use to login.  When you are prompted to create a permanent password, make sure to create a password that is easy for you to remember.  You will continue to login to the Global Opportunities site for the duration of the application and study abroad experience.

Returning Users:

WU students and staff - in the upper right hand corner select WUSTL User and login using your WUSTLKey and password.

All other applicants - in the upper right hand corner select Other to login.  Your username is the complete email address you provided when you created your account.  The password is one you created after you logged in with your temporary credentials.  If you have forgotten your password click on 'Forgot your password?' answer your security questions correctly, and a new temporary password will be emailed to you.
