January 5th Deadline
The application deadline for fall 2019, spring 2020, and 2019-20 academic year programs is Jan 5, 2019, for BC and approved external programs.

Program Limits
A growing imbalance in the number of BC students studying abroad during the fall and spring semesters has caused challenges for on-campus students seeking housing and seats in required courses. To address this concern, BC will be implementing limits for each semester and program for students studying abroad in 2019-20. The limits will be based on the total number of students who apply by the Jan 5 deadline.

Change of Pass/Fail Policy
Effective 5/31/2018, the deadline for students to declare a course P/F abroad is two weeks after the first class meeting. Courses that are six weeks or less in length must be declared within one week of the first class meeting. Also, effective AY 2018-19, there will be no P/F restrictions on BC program required courses. Refer to the academic policy for details.

Deadline Change: Spring 2019
Students interested in studying abroad in Spring 2019 who have not applied have the option to do so by June 1, 2018. Previously, exceptions were made through Sept. 30 for approved external programs. This supersedes prior information provided by the OIP in any form. Students considering program changes are to finalize plans by June 1 also, with exception of withdrawals.
